The Walworth Barbour American International School is an independent private school located just north of Tel Aviv. WBAIS delivers a strong college preparatory program that supports our mission:  to educate and prepare students for engagement in a changing world. 

WBAIS believes in the importance of designing a program that provides essential learning experiences for its students. The curricular program empowers students to become self-directed and curious learners who recognize their unique role in demonstrating responsibility and compassion. The student experience builds personal capacity to develop resilience and persistence so that learning opportunities are approached with adaptability and flexibility. Students engage in the program as critical and creative thinkers and solving problems innovatively and creatively. Students seek collaborative opportunities and use the power of words to skillfully communicate ideas, perspectives, and understandings.

WBAIS follows an American curriculum with instruction in English. The curriculum is associated with well developed and rigorous standards. These standards reach into each discipline and target core academic skills and learning principles, developing a strong foundation in core disciplines: language arts, mathematics, social studies and science, and providing strong experiences in the visual arts, performing arts, and physical education. Each division invests in the curriculum to ensure that the student experience is meaningful and challenging, culminating in the high school with options to enroll in our Advanced Placement (AP) program.

The teaching staff at WBAIS includes seventy certified teachers who all hold certifications from well respected institutions from around the world. In addition to our teaching staff, WBAIS has a Superintendent, Assistant Head of School/Director of Teaching and Learning, three building principals, four counselors, and teaching assistants at each grade level in the primary school.

After studying at WBAIS, students can navigate the world with a sense of wonder, responsibility, and proficiency.
