Student Life

GHIS is an immersive, multicultural environment situated within the 17-hectare green and historic Givat Haviva campus in northern Israel. Living as part of a diverse community in the heart of this complex region, students learn and apply conflict resolution skills that will help them navigate and thrive in their future careers. Over the course of three years, our students receive the support, motivation and inspiration they need to fully engage and succeed in the IB Diploma Programme.


GHIS gathers some of the best, brightest, and most committed high school students from numerous cultural, economic, and religious backgrounds to study, work, live, debate, and dialogue together. They learn to listen to and respect each other. Your support will enable us to empower more young leaders to work together to deliver on the promise of a better future.
