      Why Haifa? I really wanted to study abroad in Israel. At first it was between Israel and Morocco then, during my study abroad fair, I met with a former UHaifa student, put my information down, and started corresponding with the admissions. The more I thought about it, the more I wanted to come to Haifa.

   What do you like most about Haifa? The International School is just one big happy family and it is my home away from home.
