About Walworth Barbour American International School in Israel (WBAIS)
Walworth Barbour American International School in Israel (WBAIS) has a long history (we were established in 1958) of providing an environment that seeks to integrate, educate, and meet the unique needs of international young people and their families. We accomplish this by incorporating the best of what Israel and the American system of education has to offer, and what research tells us about creating the best environment to promote child development.
In the realm of international schools, WBAIS Israel has one of the most stable and experienced faculties. Comprised of internationally recruited teachers who come from abroad (and tend to stay in Israel), and anchored by local American-born and US trained faculty who have made Israel their home, our teachers are at the heart of our success. Ultimately it is the teacher of your child who will have the greatest impact on his or her experience, development, and success as a student. We devote a significant amount of our resources toward recruiting and keeping the best teachers we can find world-wide.
In today’s world (and from what we can anticipate about the future), educated people will need a variety of skills and competencies to be successful contributors to society. The attributes listed below are what our teachers and leaders have consistently worked to model and engender in every AIS student so that s/he may evolve into a lifelong learner.
