Our School

Our Mission is to deliver an instructional program characterized by internationality, world-class education, didactic completeness and ethical integrity to students from different cultures who have ambitious goals. 


The International School of Trieste is situated in a historically interesting region of Europe which provides us with many opportunities. As an independent state from 1947 to 1954, Trieste attracted a wide range of science research centers including CBM (Center for Biomolecular Medicine), ICGEB (International Centre for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology), SISSA (International School for Advanced Studies) and ICTP (International Centre for Theoretical Physics). 


IST partners with these organizations to organize visits to the institutions and host guest lecturers on our campus. The history of the region and proximity to cities like Venice & Ljubljana provides cultural and curricular-related visits for our students.
