Hi, my son graduated kindergarten last year, and may go to 1st graded this coming year. We loved the school, he took piano, art and violin after school for one hour and enjoyed it on most days. During soccer time, of course he chose soccer instead, which was offered outside the school.
The school had issues with PTA meetings, just not steady, and not much participation. The school did participate in the children international festival at the NATO HQs sponsered by Turkey. Even though 12 schools participated, one school had the less among not of parental support, again due to the administration.
Activities are planed, but not enough early notification is provided. Same with things like picture day, field trips, etc.
If you review the school, it's one of the only schools in Naples that have a large gated playground and basket ball courts. They have a garden area for the kids, nice library and nice computer.
The teachers are really great, and the album min is very strong in the schools. Second and third generations were present at the graduation. The kindergarten parents are very close. The have their own chat group on What's App, a Facebook type app, and support each other well.
We've participated in several after school or weekend trips organized by the parents, not common to Italian schools. Again this I give credit to the parents, which are very thoughtful, nice and polite.
Open house is 3rd of September, I really hope you attend.
To be honest, since several of the teacher Alumni or teachers from last year may move to a new school direclt accross from the school, we may follow them. The parents and teacher is what really made the school great. My son speaks Italian and English plus Taiwanese, thanks to the teachers. They provided special tutoring for his Italian, and now he's really good, and more importantly comfortable.
They do have a new website, so please research look again. My son did go to preschool at an Italian private school to help with the language, but the difference is huge.
Lastly, their is a international school above the Montessori school, I strongly woul not recommend it, but tour both schools and you"lol understand why.
Good luck, and let me know if you have additional questions. I have coworkers with a 5th grader who fills the same way, but his glass room was not as envolved as the Kindegarten group, put they did attend all the PTA meetings.
