About us

IIS  Raffaello is  a  Public Secondary School located in Urbino (PU), central Italy.   We currently host about 700 pupils aged between 14 and 19. The school offers a variety of courses.

There are quite a few  groups of pupils attending the IIS Raffaello School for the Humanities called “Liceo Classico” where Latin, History and Philosophy, Ancient Greek, Italian Language and Literature and English  are the core subjects.Untitled1

There is a larger group of pupils attending the IIS Raffaello Foreign Language School called “Liceo Linguistico” where English, German and French are the core subjects.

In addition  at our school  we also offer technical courses both for Tourism and for Business and Marketing where many different technical subjects are being taught along with general core subjects such as Italian, English, Maths, Geography, History and two  more  foreign languages (French and German).

All our students are very often involved in mobilities abroad either funded by the EU or by our pupils’ families.Untitled2

Traveling abroad is particularly important for our pupils because most of them come form somewhat isolated small towns surrounding Urbino and do not usually travel much together with their relatives.

Untitled1 Our school mission is always strongly connected with all the European activities developed together with our foreign partners.

In particular, we believe in the key role of internatonal and intercultural understanding that needs to be developed at school level  especially through a learning by doing approach i.e., through collaboration, enhancing personal responsability, creativity , critical thinking and research practice.
