Educational and teaching objectives

Saint Denis Middle School’s educational program aims at developing linguistic-literary, historical-geographic-social, mathematical-scientific, technological and artistic-creative literacy. We operate in the full respect  of the autonomy granted to educational institutions.

Saint Denis Middle School is characterized, in its strong linguistic and international vocation, by a Curriculum that meets the requirements of the M.I.U.R. (Italian state guidelines) as well as the Cambridge Assessment International Education syllabus.

Saint Denis Middle School uses the CLIL (Content and Language Integrated Learning) method, a teaching approach that aims at building language and communication skills in a foreign language alongside the development and acquisition of content.

In fact, the CLIL approach pursues the dual objective of focusing students' attention both on the subject taught as well as on the grammatical, phonetic and communicative aspects of the language used to convey the information.

The CLIL methodology develops in the students greater confidence in their communication skills in the foreign language (L2), develops more concrete and usable language skills in practical activities and promotes openness to a globalized approach to study and life. These parameters are inextricably intertwined with the educational spheres of relationship, emotional-affective interaction, social communication and the experiences ​​that are generated in school life. The CLIL approach is activated in the following subjects: mathematics, science, technology, music, alternative activities to the teaching of the Catholic religion.
