Why Haifa? One the reasons why I came were because of the program offered by my University.

I have began taking Arabic for a semester back home... significant portion of the population is Arabic speaking and I heard about the diversity of the city and wanted to come to Israel. 

What is the International School for me?  A place where I am constantly challenged to learn.

      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.
