Best International Schools in ​Milan

Milan has various international schools that teach a range of programmes, including the International Baccalaureate as well as American, British, French and German curricula. Fees can be pricey, but are a good way to get around language differences.
Here is a list of the most prominent international schools in Milan.


An international school in Italy is the obvious option for families planning to move o live in Milan for a short time or those who would prefer their children continue with the curriculum of their home country.

It is also a way to ease the transition into life in Italy as children attending these schools will be around others with similar backgrounds and will undertake a familiar curriculum.

However, this can create a bit of a cultural bubble with children not assimilating into Italian culture as a result. Some wealthy Italian parents choose to send their children to these schools, but they are in the minority.

An ideal middle-ground solution may be to enrol children in a school that combines the Italian curriculum with their country’s local curriculum, or a bilingual international school teaching in both the child’s native tongue and Italian.

There is stiff competition for the limited places available in prestigious international schools, so it’s always best to start applications as early as possible.

Admission requirements vary from institution to institution, but previous school records are standard and in some cases extra steps may be needed, such as the child attending a personal interview or taking admission tests.

High tuition fees are the norm for international schools, so if possible, expats should try to negotiate for an educational allowance as part of their employment contract when relocating to Italy.
