What to expect as a Naale high school student in Israel

The school year in Israel runs from September to June, with a break for winter vacation in December or January and a break for Passover. Classes are typically held from Sunday to Thursday, with a half-day on Friday.

Israeli culture is very different from that in the United States. For example, Israelis consider family of utmost importance, and most people regularly visit their extended families. Naale students are assigned to host families where they can go on weekends or holidays, and who help students acclimate to their new lives.
