Our programs and curricula are based upon the Italian method, and thus incorporate the style and course work one would find if their child were attending school in Italy.
All of our textbooks and materials come from Italian “asili”, Italian preschools, and “scuole primarie”, Italian elementary schools. Our native and native-like Italian teachers speak strictly Italian, and ensure that students do the same.
It is our goal to use various play activities, written exercises, and reading activities to develop each child’s existing ability to express themselves, as well as to keep them on track to return to school in Italy, should they ever decide to.
Our program is home to an established group of bilingual children who have been with Italian School NJ since its inception. For these particular students, one or both of their parents is a native Italian, and our program provides them with the opportunity to keep their cultural and linguistic connection to Italy alive, while being able to share in both Italian and American culture equally.
