WHAT OUR TEACHERS SAY ABOUT US

The following our quotes from our 2019/20 staff engagement survey:
 

"I feel very fortunate to work in a school like ISMonza. There is a positive work environment here and the management and leadership (Principal/Coordinators) are very supportive."

"Teachers and students work together to achieve common goals."

"I'm proud to teach in a great learning environment."

"Students are happy to be in school since there are a lot of experiences. The atmosphere in school is lovely."

"I feel positive about the school and have always been committed to it. There is always room for improvement but the school has made very big strides in the last 5 years. There is a definite spirit of working towards excellence."

"I am very happy and proud to work at ISM."

"You can really feel the community spirit around the whole school (teaching/non teaching staff, parents, students). Great place to grow professionally surrounded by so many experienced people ready to help you out and give you advice."

"I have only been here a few weeks but I am really enjoying working here. I really like the programme and enjoy working collaboratively with the friendly staff here."

"I have just started but I enjoy the work and the work environment."

"This is a very special place to work...we're a school that creates a lot of buy-in from me (and virtually all other stakeholders as well) and I think that's because I invest so much into what's going on here (and again, I think we all do). That makes it easy every day to come in and truly want to do everything I can do to make our school even better today than it was yesterday...it's easy to be motivated to be part of a team such as ours."

OUR HOST CITY 

Monza is Lombardy’s “second city” and is perhaps most famous for hosting the annual Italian Grand Prix within its walled park, the largest in Europe. It is a small city with plenty of green spaces as well as rich cultural heritage. Many of its 120,000 inhabitants chose it for its international outlook, affordable accommodation and quick rail access to the fashionable and buzzing city of Milan, as well as the world-renowned Italian lakes.
