Real Bilingualism


Real bilingualism is the capacity to use two languages, completely without relying on translation from one language to another. 

At The ISTreviso, our students live and learn in an English full-immersion environment; when children approach a new foreign language, they will initially experience communication difficulties. During this delicate and necessary phase, they will absorb new sounds and begin to grasp the meaning of keywords usually used in school. Once the fundamental vocabulary has been assimilated, the children will be able to orally interact with the other students and the teachers. Depending on the students’ age, this process may require a different duration.

Early Years

Our Early Years Programme provides exciting and challenging learning opportunities through a variety of play-based activities, designed to promote the natural wonder and curiosity of young children for discoveries and experiences.


The IB Primary years Programme® is a curriculum framework, focused on the development of the whole child as an inquirer and life-long learner, both in school and in the real world.

The Italian programme

At The International School of Treviso we believe that the international mindset is also expressed through the recognition and valorization of Italy, as hosting country.

Located in the nearby of Treviso centre, our exclusive facilities offer fully equipped classrooms, an open-space arts room, a multimedia library, a multi-activity gym, a cozy dining hall, a greenhouse and exclusive outdoor playgrounds, differentiated for the Early Years and Primary students.Limited class sizes, along with the Apple® One-to-One technology support and encourage the development of inquiry-based learning, the educational core of the Primary Years Programme.


The school runs from 09:00 am (admission from 8:30 am) to 03:30 pm, Mondays through Fridays.
