While you study at the International School, we will make every effort possible to integrate you completely into campus life. Israeli students will be enrolled in many courses you choose to take and you will also live alongside Israeli students in the campus dormitories.
Through numerous volunteer and internship placements, you will have the opportunity to experience Israel first-hand as you leave campus to meet and work with Israelis within Israeli society.
An experienced staff of Student Activity Coordinators prepares an extensive itinerary of trips and tours which offers students an enlightening view of Israel, its people, natural beauty and cultural sites. Visiting lecturers come to speak on various aspects of life in Israel, including politics, security, religion, culture, and other topics of interest to the students.
