United Herzlia Schools is an institution with just under 2000 pupils and 300 staff spread over 8 campuses. In order to facilitate the smooth running of our schools, we have divided the schools operating structures into two distinctly separate divisions: Education headed by Geoff Cohen who oversees all teaching and learning in our school and Central Administration & Finance under David Ginsberg.
DIRECTOR OF EDUCATION
The education of children is our primary mission at Herzlia. We aim to produce well-rounded, educated children who can take their place in society as global citizens. As the Director of Education, I am responsible for ensuring that the standard of education at Herzlia is of the highest order.
An institution with 8 campuses has its own challenges not the least of which is ensuring that all our schools operate within the same educational framework whilst maintaining the personality and individuality of each campus. To make this work, we have consolidated a number of departments that bring all the schools into line.

Inclusion & Extension Programmes
We are constantly reviewing teaching methodologies and curriculum development, organising training and development for teaching staff, co-ordinating outsourced sports coaches and remedial teachers.
Our Principals Management Committee meet every month to discuss and brainstorm areas of mutual benefit, resolve problems and plan programmes, events and activities.
I often tell my staff that each and every day they walk through the gates of our school, they make a difference in the lives of our children. I genuinely believe that we do indeed make a difference in the lives of our children. I also believe that we teach our children to respect others and to be accepting of all people. I believe that when they leave the safe and secure environment of Herzlia, they take with them the qualities needed to become decent and productive citizens of our global society and that wherever they go in the world, they will be fine examples and ambassadors of their community, their family and their school.
