The main initiatives for High School

The high school offers a wide range of activities to its students, such as lectures on current events like Brexit, presentations and discussions on human rights, visits to scientific centers, science fairs, book fairs, citizenship projects, and poetry contests. The school also hosts workshops on writing, theater shows, and art exhibitions. In addition, students have the opportunity to participate in official sports games, swimming lessons, and music performances. These activities aim to enrich students’ learning experiences, encourage creativity, and promote a sense of community within the school.

Citizenship and cultural pluralism Programme

The importance of citizenship and the attention to cultural pluralism are highly underrated in school programmes nowadays. Indeed, these subjects may have remarkable consequences on young students’ views on their present and future. This is the reason why Andersen International School wants to devote specific attention to such issues by its Citizenship and Cultural Pluralism Programme.

This Programme intends to provide High School students the precious opportunity to face crucial and controversial topics and to debate them with highly qualified specialists.
In order to respect such a mission, the Programme offers an annual season of meetings centered on seven key issues:

  • Human Rights
  • Peace keeping
  • Multiculturalism and Globalization
  • The Female Condition
  • Religious and non-Religious Orientations
  • Ecology and Sustainable Development
  • Health and Nutrition
  • Science and development


The Programme provides transversal lectures for the whole High School. Each lecture is followed by cross-curricular activities organized by class teachers during the daily timetable. These activities give the possibility of an extended multidisciplinary analysis of certain aspects the specialist dealt with during her or his presentation.
The Programme is coordinated by a scholar with relevant international experience who is chosen by the Direction of Andersen International School.
