There is a natural progression of pupils from all three Herzlia Primary Schools into the middle campus. Additionally, the middle campus acts as a stepping stone to the High School, where they will ultimately complete their schooling and matriculate.

The curriculum is tailored with this age-group in mind – which we refer to as ‘in-betweenagers’. We ensure to engage with the pupils with all of our fundamental pillars in mind, namely: education, sports, Jewish Life, arts and culture and Menschlichkeit to provide them with a host of opportunities to reach their potential.

Adolescence is the age of enthusiastic involvement and excitement, a time of active participation and exploration.  Geared specifically for Grade 7 – 9 Herzlia Middle School offers a safe environment in which adolescents are encouraged to grow at their own pace.

The Inclusive Leadership Programme aims to deliver and develop the skills to be a leader to the students in each of the grades here. With tremendous success, the result is a programme in which more than 100 pupils are occupying various leadership positions within the school, including Grade representatives, captains of sports teams and class monitors.

In addition, all pupils are exposed to this field of training and an exciting development has included many participants in the President’s Leadership Award.

We have a very active and vibrant Inter-house system, which is inclusive of all the students and teachers. These activities include:

  • galas
  • athletic competitions
  • plays
  • sporting activities.

At Herzlia Middle School it’s important for us to provide an inspiring environment where there is a balance between freedom to innovate and learning in a framework of a mutual respect which stems from discipline. We find that this is an easy task to execute if we, as role models, live out the values of cooperation and accountability.

“At the Middle School, it’s important for us to provide a balanced learning environment in which children are free to express ideas. In addition to world-class education and a sound atmosphere, we strive to reinforce many Jewish values such as; Torah, Truth, Integrity, Respect and Pride. Visitors to Herzlia Middle School often mention the happy ‘vibe’ they can sense sitting in the office area waiting for an appointment. I believe this is because we are not just a school, but also a family. If we all value each other’s contributions - big or small - towards this unique learning environment instilling Jewish values, allowing for each other’s differences, while nurturing a sense of belonging, we will live our motto every day believing that if you will it, it will be no dream.”
