Experience High School - in Israel
The core curriculum is conducted in chronological historical order, with on-site experiential learning. Jewish teens connect with others from around the globe and create relationships that influence significant decisions as they plan for the post-high schools phase of life. Most students agree that the most incredible part of the experience is getting to live in Israel like a local, instead of a tourist.
The original Hod HaSharon AMHSI campus hosts the summer and 8-week sessions. With the support of Jewish National Fund (JNF), an AMHSI partner, the newest AMHSI campus was recently opened at the Eshel Hanassi Youth Village in the Negev, where the full semester program is held. More than double the length of a traditional eight-week AMHSI session, the new four-month program develops a deeper exposure to, and connection with, Israel, building upon the core AMHSI curriculum while including additional features such as Hebrew classes, mock army training, and a four-day hike across the country from “sea to sea,” from the Galilee to the Mediterranean. The semester also includes a week in Poland to study about the Holocaust, continuing with the AMHSI educational methodology of learning on-site where history took place.
