Alexander Muss High School in Israel’s New Spring Semester Study Abroad Program In the Negev
Space is still available for the Alexander Muss High School in Israel (AMHSI) Spring Semester Program leaving January 27, 2013 and returning May 31, 2013.
Built due to popular demand, the AMHSI 18-week semester program, more than double the length of the traditional AMHSI session, develops a deeper exposure to, and connection with, Israel. Based at AMHSI’s new “green” campus at Eshel Hanassi Agricultural Youth Village, just outside of Beer Sheva, in the Negev, the full semester session builds upon the core AMHSI curriculum, and includes additional features such as Hebrew classes, a “Gadna” IDF pre-military simulation program, a four day hike across the country from “sea to sea” – from the Galilee to the Mediterranean, and an extended Negev trip with desert hiking followed by sun and fun in Israel’s southern resort of Eilat. The semester also includes a week in Poland, a voyage of discovery into the grandeur of pre-war Jewish Europe and the tragedy of the Holocaust, continuing with the AMHSI educational methodology of learning on-site where history took place. An important aspect of life as an AMHSI semester student is getting to know Israeli peers, whether interacting together in the dining hall, playing basketball on the school courts, or working side by side on the school kibbutz-style farm on a daily basis.
Accredited by the Commission on Secondary Schools of the Middle States Association, AMHSI is designed for 10th, 11th and 12th grade high school students.
