The Personal Interview:

The Personal Interview for the Kindergarten Stage:

Children are interviewed by the kindergarten administration to make sure of their abilities and suitability to the stage program.

The Personal Interview for the Rest of the Stages:

The personal interview for students wishing to register in our schools is done by a special committee headed by the general director of schools or the person acting on behalf of her and the membership of the headmistress of every stage and assistant according to the interview schedules.

During the interview, the committee gets the first impression on the student’s personality and characteristics and understands special matters regarding the student’s family.

The committee also helps parents understand the educational philosophy of the schools, the nature of educational programs and the teaching method.
