The PIB Italian Saturday School for Boston Children (Scuola Italiana del Sabato PIB per Bambini dell’Area di Boston) was launched to fulfill the high demand of full-immersion Italian classes for children who already speak Italian in New England.
The first classes took place in March 2014 for a trimester with approximately 15 students; the first full year of classes started in September 2014 for 30 students in collaboration with the Pirandello school in the North End. Since September 2015, to optimize results and ensure full-immersion courses tailored for Italian-speakers, the school is independently managed in Cambridge, MA, and teaches to over 50 students between 3 and 12 years old. Approximately 70-80 students are expected to register for the 2016-2017 school year.
Programs are designed together with CASIT (a local nonprofit organization, for 20+ years devoted to teaching Italian) and with the School Department of the Italian General Consulate in Boston.
