The Field Trip program at the International School of Turin is a unique feature of the curriculum offered by the school. In keeping with a long IST tradition of field trips, these have been carefully selected and designed to complement the school´s curricula at each grade level. The International School of Turin encourages the use of organized off-campus trips that will serve worthwhile educational outcomes and enhance the learning process of our students. The School recognizes that the delivery of varied programs, using the field trip as a learning medium, requires coordination, safety precautions and financial resources. Field trips within Italian borders that focus on Italian heritage, regional differences and cultural diversity are encouraged. International field trips organized to focus on cross-cultural understanding, are also supported. The International School of Turin believes that curricular and extracurricular activities involving travel are an important offering to our students and it is expected that all students take part to the trips. Expenses for these trips are included in the regular school tuitions for the school year.
