I welcome you to St. Francis International School and to our website. St. Francis is located in the north of Rome. Our school is a special place, and we are energized by the opportunity of partnering with parents to educate our children.

Four beliefs guide our work. We believe in the intellectual, emotional, physical, creative, social, and developmental needs and unique abilities of each child. We believe in helping each child develop self-confidence, self-respect, and self-reliance as essential ingredients for learning. We believe in developing students’ respect and responsibility for their natural, social, and educational environment. We believe students who have a meaningful connection to diverse nationalities will help create a world in which cooperation, tolerance and kindness prevail.

St. Francis is composed of a caring group of teachers and support staff. We strive to create an environment where students feel safe, comfortable, and respected.
