Model Farms High School is a public high school in Baulkham Hills, a suburb in northwest Sydney, New South Wales. The school is named so because the area was set up to demonstrate farming practices to convicts and others who wished to start a farm when the first settlers arrived. The school was built and established in 1975.


A new school house system was introduced in 2007, with some major changes to the old system. It includes receiving house points for merits and awards, as well as sporting events like the annual swimming carnival. The houses consist of Chisholm (green), Peel (blue), Thompson (red), and Wentworth (yellow).
