About Scuola del Merkos
La Scuola del Merkos is an Italian Jewish school.
Inspired by the biblical saying, "Train a lad in the way he ought to go; He will not swerve from it even in old age" (Prov. 22:6), we strive to provide our students with a solid Jewish education while keeping in harmony with the Italian environment. Our ultimate goal is to form balanced adults, both from a human perspective and from a religious point of view.
Based in Via delle Forze Armate 61, Milan, the school comprises a Nursery unit (Nido d’Infanzia) which operates in agreement with the City Council, a Pre-School Unit (Scuola dell'Infanzia), a Primary School (Scuola Primaria) and a Secondary School (Scuola Media), all officially recognised.
Israeli diploma included
In April 2014 the Israeli Ministry of Education recognised our Liceo Joe Nahmad "Bagrut" project, launched as a pilot project in 2011. Under this new partnership, our students can now officially attend the Bagrut exams at the Merkos School in Milan and obtain the Bagrut national Israeli diploma in Italy.
