Welcome from our Head of School, Dr. Michael Cascianelli

Welcome to La Scuola d’Italia, New York. It is my pleasure to introduce you to our vibrant IB World School community that brings a unique bilingual learning environment to students in New York City.

Founded in 1977, La Scuola has become the only Italian International school in North America with students from PreK 3 to Grade 12. Our institution is not only a learning place for students who wish to become fully bilingual in English and Italian but also a place of global and cultural understanding grounded on our Italian identity, creativity, and academic excellence.

We are fortunate to be in one of the most prestigious and fascinating areas of Manhattan and look forward to welcoming you to visit our campus and meet our faculty and staff.

New York City is our home; the world is our oyster
