Smiling International School is the first and only school in Ferrara where the main language of instruction is English. It was born thanks to a passion and desire for an innovative didactic approach which would provide an education in line with the changing times and European standards. Students are at the center of the didactical projects, and we respect their individual inclinations. Our teachers work together with a lot of interdisciplinary projects: in addition to Italian, English, Math or Art, our primary school children study Computer Science, Chinese and Music.
