H-FARM International School, located just outside of Venice, Italy, empowers students to be internationally-minded citizens who are able to shape their own future in a rapidly changing global community. Through innovative learning environments and the development of relationships based on compassion and respect, we enable students to become confident, creative and collaborative. We are a community of active lifelong learners. H-FARM International School serves a diverse and growing community of students and families.
Our school uses English as the language of instruction and learning and aims to promote international mindedness and global citizenship.
We offer three of the International Baccalaureate Organization’s educational programmes: Primary Years Programme (nursery / elementary school), Middle Years Programme (middle school + 1st two years of high school) and the world-renowned Diploma Programme (final two years of high school), an engaging curriculum that prepares students to access the most prestigious universities and colleges in the world.
Our school is located within the Campus of H-FARM , located just 10 minutes from Venice International Airport, an unparalleled center for innovation in Europe, with a strong DNA of digital technology, creativity and entrepreneurship. The sprawling, 51-hectare Campus boasts world class services for both its boarding and day students. H-FARM students have access to full-service Boarding facilities (which were recently certified by the BSA), an indoor and outdoor sports complex, a fully-equipped gymnasium, a coffee shop and restaurant, a library with communal study areas, a radio station, an astronomy observation station, innovative science and Virtual Reality laboratories.
Students have access to the services and facilities of H-FARM Campus, including the sports center with its indoor arena that houses a multipurpose volley- and basketball court and a rock climbing wall. An outdoor area measuring more than 5,000 square meters hosts two multipurpose playgrounds, two tennis courts, two padel courts, beach volleyball courts, a football pitch, a skate park and a bmx pump track.
Through our Boarding service, H-FARM International School offers its students the opportunity to live in our student residence located within the H-FARM Campus, either 5 or 7 days a week. Since October 2022, our Boarding service has been officially accredited by the Boarding Schools' Association. The Boarding Schools’ Association (BSA) represents an institution that provides training for boarding staff and promotes educational initiatives for students.
Located two hundred meters from the school building, the student residence consists of two residential buildings overlooking a central green park, sports facilities, and the large library. The residence is also next to an area dedicated to common services, for a total area of over 4,000 square meters. It can accommodate up to 220 beds, divided into single, double and dedicated accommodation for students with disabilities.
This school year, we welcomed more than 170 new students and more than 100 Boarding students from 20 different countries and representing all 6 continents. Boarding students are cared for by Residence Life coordinators, who also facilitate weekend excursions and activities that allow students to enjoy the natural and cultural attractions of our stunning corner of Italy.
