Current Opportunities

La Scuola has recently been recognized as San Francisco’s first IB-PYP School and is now the first Reggio - IB Italian Immersion program in the world! La Scuola, founded in San Francisco in 2002 as La Piccola Scuola Italiana, has grown from a small playgroup of Italian-American and Italian families to a thriving International community of over 240 families from preschool through 6th grade. This year we are officially opening Middle School!

We are very proud of our growing multicultural, warm and lively community of staff and parents with 25 different languages spoken at home and people from all walks of life. 

We commit to being innovative and open to the changes in education that will allow our students to thrive in the 21st century, in addition to develop their cross-cultural cognition, thanks to the close interaction with peers and teachers from all over the world.


What Our Teachers Say...

"La Scuola is a place that has made me grow in so many aspects of my life. Working as a teacher at La Scuola, means for me being a researcher with the children and together, discovering something new every day. It is a great learning experience. I enjoy the inquiry process, and offering to my students new provocations in reference to the education, trying to generate different spaces that respect the integral development of the children, making the school a place where the students are always looking forward to go to. We are open-minded and believe in the one hundred languages of Malaguzzi, we value different ways of thinking and communicate through our Reggio inspiration.
