Deep reflection during the pandemic

The pandemic lockdown was a time of reflection for Claudio, prompting him to reorient the school. He took the opportunity to begin the transformation process towards an IB school, starting with the PYP program and then the MYP, with the aim of continuing up to the DP. This decision reflects his commitment to bringing educational innovation to Kinder College.

A dream of international educational experiences

Claudio dreams of offering students even more direct experiences abroad, organizing cultural exchanges with schools in other countries. Although they are already active with numerous study trips, he wants to further encourage these opportunities and create school weeks dedicated to different cultures, with the aim of establishing direct contacts and meaningful cultural exchanges.
