Positive experiences and educational rigour

Primary school, in continuity with Preprimary school, lays the foundations for increasingly conscious participation in cultural and social life, gradually developing the essential skills to continue learning and encouraging the development of a true personal identity. Autonomy, self-esteem but also high respect for the rules is promoted.

Family – school rapport

Collegio Gallio is a place of learning where we recognize the fundamental value of collaboration between school and families.
We believe that actively involving families in their children’s educational journeys is essential to ensuring a prosperous and harmonious school environment.
We organize regular parent and teacher meetings to create a space where parents can discuss their children’s progress and challenges with teachers.
We promote the creation of committees and support groups in which parents can actively contribute to the life of the school.
We warmly invite families to participate in celebrations and school events.
