As a boarding school, we know that all children are different and would ideally like to meet you and your child, allow you to experience the school and get to know you all so that we fully understand your needs. However, we have students from over 40 countries already studying with us, so we know that it isn’t always easy to come and visit the school. This is why we have created a process where you can find out everything you need to know about the school from our website.

We look forward to welcoming you.

Frequently Asked Questions

These frequently asked questions are designed to assist you as the parent or guardian of an applicant. We understand that sending your student to EMIS can be challenging and may raise many questions. Our aim is to be entirely honest with applicants and their families about what to expect, while also reassuring you that your student will have a wonderful and positively transformative experience.

General Information

Does the school have a code of conduct?

EMIS adheres to a common code of practice, which forbids drugs, tobacco (on campus smoking is always forbidden), alcohol on school property, sexual activity in any public area including student rooms, ‘hazing’, bullying or harassment, assault, and stealing. Furthermore, our school is required to have clear expectations with regard to attendance, academic integrity, respect for curfew and alcohol off campus. There are more details regarding the rules on our website.

What are the policies with regard to parents visiting during the year?

Parents can visit but they won’t be able to sleep on campus. However, there are many hotels nearby.

Are students allowed to leave for family emergencies? Yes.

For international students who will only go home at the end of the school year and would like to stay on campus during holidays, will the cafeteria, residence and other services be available? Yes.

Is there a school uniform?

No, but students must dress in presentable and appropriate clothing.

What can students do during the weekend?

Weekends are a great time to relax, interact with fellow students, do sports, activities, rest, do homework, assignments, explore, read. Way too informal!! Much like what they would have done at home, they can do here. The school will arrange some activities from time to time such as organized trips, guest speakers, group activities, etc.

How will students travel if they want to shop? Will they need to ride public transportation?

15 minutes by foot, students can walk to the town of Ramat Hasharon, where all necessities can be found: school supplies, cosmetics, food, clothing, etc. There is a bus stop at the campus entrance with many buses to Tel Aviv and other nearby suburban areas. Additionally, there is always the option of ordering a taxi.


How much luggage should a student bring?

First, check with your airline’s dimension restrictions. Second, in terms of space availability in the dorm rooms, there is enough space to store up to one suitcase and one duffle bag per student. We recommend bringing one suitcase, one duffle bag (good for weekend trips), and a backpack.

Will students traveling alone to Israel be met at the airport by an EMIS representative?

Yes. An EMIS representative will wait for you at the airport in August. If students decide to return home during breaks throughout the school year, they will be responsible for getting themselves to get back to campus, and will not be met by EMIS personnel at the airport.
