Welcome to KS Secondary School
Inspiring and empowering the next generation to discover their unique purpose, access their inner drivers and lead with impact.
The King Solomon Lower Secondary School focuses on assisting each individual pupil to identify his/her strengths and weaknesses, to discover his/her personal purpose, and to acquire the relevant skills for success. With an emphasis on the formulation of identity as an individual, a Jew, an Israeli and a global citizen, our dynamic programme is built simultaneously upon our unwavering core values and the constantly evolving skills that are required for success in an unpredictable world. Our curriculum synthesises our national curriculum together with Global perspectives, strengthening the national identity of our pupils while expanding their worldview . We strengthen the values and the skills of our developing pupils, and uncover their passions from within. In so doing, we provide them with the motivation, the direction and the ability to become the best versions of themselves as they begin to assume their places as leaders of impact.
Our core programme places an emphasis on values, skills and passions. Moving away from viewing education as the process of transmission of material and content to one of modeling strong core values, empowering our pupils with critical skills for success and accessing their unique passions and interests.
