“I work with schools across the world and it is very rare to come across such a focused, dedicated and professional group of teachers as I did this week at International School of Monza. The teachers were reflective, open-minded, collaborative and engaged. I have no doubt that the DP students at ISMonza are in good hands and will be expertly guided to achieve the best they can… The teachers of ISMonza help to make it the positive learning experience it should be, setting up students for the future, whatever they choose to do.”
