La Piazza Italian School is an Italian Language and Culture School founded by a native Italian teacher, that is also a mother of bilingual children, who felt the necessity to bring her Italian experience into the American reality.
Our mission is to offer a real, rich and full Italian experience while teaching the language. The beauty and immense cultural heritage of Italy, its art, history, music, literature and cuisine will be part of our student's experience.
La Piazza Italian School offers group courses and private lessons, for all levels of proficiency and all ages.

La Piazza Italian School opens in 2017 with the mission to offer a real Italian cultural experience to New Jersey, that is well known for its Italian descendants, so to invigorate the Italian legacy in the community and to really keep it alive.
