It is a pleasure and a privilege to welcome you to QSI International School of Brindisi.
We wish to welcome students, parents and visitors from around the world! Since its founding in 2005, the QSI International School of Brindisi has served the local and expatriate communities of Puglia. QSI Brindisi was established to provide a quality education in the English language for students between the ages of 3 and 18. Our goal is to offer an exceptional education in the context of a vibrant educational family. We offer a well-rounded curriculum, taught by certified teachers, and based on a Mastery Learning approach to education. Our students, whose families come to Italy for business, humanitarian missions, and government assignments, come from over 15 nationalities, making us a truly international community.
QSI Brindisi is an independent, coeducational program, offering rigorous classes from age 3 through secondary graduation. Our students are led by qualified teachers who care for them as individuals, and QSI holds full accreditation from the Middle States Association of Schools and Colleges. The school is governed by the Quality Schools International Board of Directors, as well as a local Advisory Board, who offer guidance to the school.
QSI Brindisi follows a model of education that measures success by the accomplishments and attitudes of our students. We believe that all of our students can succeed, that their successes encourage them to create habits that lead to more success, and that it is the schools' responsibility to provide the conditions for success. We also believe in teaching the whole child, working with parents to encourage students to adopt character skills that lead to success long after formal schooling has ended. These universally accepted "Success Orientations", known as "TRACKING" with the Brindisi wolves, of trustworthiness, responsibility, aesthetic appreciation, concern for others, kindness & politeness, independent endeavor, and group interaction are behavior traits we build and reinforce alongside academic lessons.
As you become acquainted with the way we operate, you will find QSI Brindisi, to be a small, student and family friendly learning community characterized by openness, respect, curiosity, and a sincere desire to meet the needs of all students. Our door is open and we look forward to serving you soon.
