As an Italian Section, the school would be eligible for financial support and professional development, and students would have access to options to attend a university in Italy or the European Union. The designation would strengthen the authenticity and quality of the Italian Immersion program.
The Italian government has a strong interest in programs that promote the Italian language throughout the world. They consider MIIS to be a valuable public entity that deserves their backing.
