“We’re an International Baccalaureate [IB] school, so naturally we’re very strong on this – but other than that, our real strength is our language programme,” says Yoel Gordon, head of admissions. “We offer English as a second or additional language, as well as mother-tongue teaching in 22 different languages.” The language programme has given the school a respected name and provides insight into the unique environment prospective students can expect. Gordon estimates that the single largest language group represents no more than nine per cent of the entire student population, pinpointing just how diverse the atmosphere is. “There’s no dominant culture or language,” he explains.
