Saint Denis Middle School considers the role of the school in education and in the transmission of the values ​​and key principles to future conscientious and responsible global citizens of fundamental importance.

Our School believes that different cultures can and must learn to respect and recognize each other, underlining the need to focus on the enrichment deriving from the interaction between different experiences, as a process of maturation of children, through mental flexibility and evolution on a cognitive level, under the banner of research, experimentation and, above all, openness to dialogue.
