It has expanded from a playgroup with a dozen toddlers into one of the
territory's most respected international schools, with some 250 students of up
to middle school age. Our reputation is founded on secular academic excellence,
a vibrant Jewish Studies program and a warm, supportive environment
characterized by respect for the individual and tolerance. Carmel students come
from a rich mix of international backgrounds. Most are from Britain, Canada,
Hong Kong, Israel, South Africa and the United States, with a wide number of
other countries also represented. Religious backgrounds range from secular to
traditionally observant. Academically, Carmel follows a U.S.-style curriculum.
Religiously, it adheres to Modern Orthodox principles.
