The European School, Varese (commonly known as ESV; Italian: Scuola Europea di Varese), in Varese, Lombardy, Italy, is a European School, one of a small number of schools founded by the European Union (EU) for the benefit of its staff in member states. The presence of the school in Varese is mainly because nearby Ispra hosts three institutes of the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission.

The school was founded in 1960. The school has three sections: a two-year nursery school, a 5-year primary school, and a 7-year secondary school.[1] Students prepare for the European Baccalaureate. The European School of Varese is an institution of the European Union. Study at this institution brings a graduation diploma that qualifies for university study in all the countries of the EU.

It was previously recognized as a German school by the West German government, as the Europäische Schule.[2]
