Our Campuses

Junior School Campus

The Junior School, for students in grades Preschool – 5, is located in Villa le Tavernule in Bagno a Ripoli, about a 20 minute drive from the center of Florence. The villa was restored to accomodate classrooms, specialist areas, the Eli Emery Computer Room, the Horace W. Gibson Aula Magna and the Paul Burke-Mahoney Library. The formal garden has a breath-taking view of the Tuscan countryside. The rural setting of this campus makes it easy to incorporate nature studies into its Units of Inquiries from the PYP Program. This campus has an all weather sports field, two playgrounds and a specially equipped and surfaced play area for the Preschool and Kindergarten classes.

Upper School Campus

The Middle and High Schools are housed in Villa Torri di Gattaia, a five minute walk from the famed Piazzale Michelangelo with its unique view over the city of Florence. The villa is immersed in the nearby countryside and is just 10 minutes from the historical center of Florence.
The villa is situated in a setting of formal gardens and its facilities include a covered terrace/lunch room, an Aula Magna, classrooms, a state-of-the-art computer lab, the science wing, the art studio, and a two-tiered, wireless access library. A large sports complex, within easy walking distance from the school, hosts the ISF Physical Education program.
