What is the availability of international schools? What has been your general experience with them, if any?

The American School in Even Yehuda is highly-regarded with many families stating it's one of the best in the system. - Oct 24, 2016
The American school is located in Evan Yehuda, about 20 minutes north of the Herzliya area. Another English-large speaking option is the Tabetha School in Jaffa. - Apr 12, 2016
I think WBAIS (in Even Yehuda - north of Herzliya) and Tabeetha (in Jaffa) are the two to choose from. We've had a child in WBAIS in elementary school and have been extremely happy with the school and the teachers. I feel like the teachers are true professionals - they are from North America but are in Israel permanently so they are not transient. I have consistently been impressed by how much they are experts in their area, their passion for particular teaching programs and frankly, how well they know my child. I know my child won't forget them and her parents will not forget them either. - Nov 18, 2014
WBAIS is a pretty demanding school, almost like a Harvard prep school. - Apr 10, 2013
None. Families seem happy with the schools. - Aug 14, 2010
American International School in Netanya, about an hour or more from TA. It has a good reputation, but there is a lot of infighting among the parents. - Jul 26, 2010
There is an American school about 30 minutes north of the Embassy- it has a new campus, with great facilities. - Feb 27, 2009
There is a new American International School, however our children are grown. But I have not heard any complaints. - Jul 2, 2008
