The organization is situated in the centre of Teramo, a small town in the middle of Italy, near the Adriatic coast.
There are 4 Infant Schools, 2 Primary Schools and 1 Secondary School, situated in different buildings in Teramo. Istituto Comprensivo di Campli was founded in 2012. Population belongs to a high-medium bracket and usually both parents work. So the organization includes students with a quite homogeneous background. There are students with special needs and students recognized as BES, pupils who ask for special attention because of their social and cultural disadvantages, learning disabilities. In this context the school aims to develop its educative path according to students’ needs and families’ expectations to valorize diversities and prevent school distress and drop-out.
The school offers a wide activity plan that covers the main area of competence development: there are ICT projects (eTwinning, coding), Music, Art and Drama laboratories, projects that develop reading skills in mother tongue and in English, social skills (against bullying attitudes) and to promote inclusive education through technology. In addition, the school collaborates with other local organizations in school networks to promote inclusion ("Inclusive Network"), European Projects (Erasmus Plus), a new curriculum ("Curriculum Change and Innovation Network" ). Teachers are used to teach through innovative methodologies (CLIL, PBL, cooperative learning, teamwork) and integrate technology into their curriculum and teaching. Students start learning English at Infant school and Spanish and French at Primary School (4th grade).
Students in Secondary School study English, German, Spanish and French. The international school dimension is promoted through the participation into European projects (Erasmus and eTwinning).
