Last post was a summary of my school years but for those not living in Italy our school system may be complicated specially when explained by me.... therefore I did some research and I found this explanation on fulbright.it.
Here's the extract from their site:
"Secondary School System in Italy
Italian high school, or scuola superiore, consists of five years of study which lead to the Esame di Stato (often called the maturità), a diploma issued by the Ministero della Pubblica Istruzione upon successful completion of national
exams (June). Within the scuola superiore structure, the most challenging level of instruction and studies are offered at liceo, which specifically prepares students for university. Liceo studies are offered in a number of disciplines, such
as liceo classico (classics literature, Latin & ancient Greek), liceo scientifico (math, science, technology), liceo linguistico (languages), or liceo artistico (fine & performing arts). The term “ginnasio” refers to the first 2 years of a 5-year liceo classico program. The “standard” track of scuola superiore leads to university or to professional training at the post-secondary level. Italy offers technical schools for agricultural, industrial, and commercial sectors (tourism, land surveying, etc). Vocational courses lead to specific trades (electrician, plumber, technician, etc).
Vocational programs/schools do not necessarily foresee university study and may lead directly to work after secondary education.
The general level of Italian high-school study, particularly at liceo, is relatively advanced, with regard to US education standards. Selected US universities recognize the advanced nature of the Italian liceo and scuola superiore through
advanced placement or university credit for successful completion of the Esame di Stato. For further information on Italy’s educational system, see http://eacea.ec.europa.eu/education/eurydice/eurybase_en.php#italy "
Last week I played with a new kit by Maria Designs called Bouquet des Forêts, perfect for this time of the year.
