High School

A pioneering four-year programme

Smiling High School was established in 2014. It is a State-recognised school that offers scientific-linguistic training through innovative teaching methods. Our teachers are qualified, empathetic, approachable and motivated. 

With Chinese and Spanish taught by native-speaking teachers and all other subjects taught in English, our International High School guarantees superior quality language learning. We also dedicate a large number of hours to scientific subjects. We collaborate with the University of Ferrara to run workshops and placements and we’ve partnered with local companies to ensure our students have a broad skill set. This sets them apart, making them eligible for any choice of university in Italy or abroad.

Our high school students study in a beautiful, historic building. To read more about the story of Palazzo Gulinelli, take a look at this piece written by our high school students. It won an award in a national writing competition!
