Ethos of the School
Carmel School is an independent Jewish Day School which follows Modern Orthodox principles and has a strong commitment to Zionism. Carmel places emphasis on adherence to traditional Judaism, as set out in the Shulchan Aruch (Code of Jewish Law).
In Jewish Studies, Carmel teaches Judaism as a way of life, encourages each child to take pride in his or her Jewish identity and seeks to develop individuals who are knowledgeable and committed to the Jewish tradition.
As an academic institution, Carmel is an accredited International Baccalaureate (IB) School offering the IB Diploma, Middle Years and Primary Years Programmes. We are fully committed to achieving the highest international educational standards as measured against other leading international schools in Hong Kong and top private schools abroad. Students are taught by experienced, qualified teachers who empower each student to realise his or her own potential.
Carmel is an independent organization, unaffiliated with any synagogue. The School was established to encourage the participation of all Jewish families in the Hong Kong Jewish Community. Each student is respected for his or her individuality and Jewish affiliation and Carmel strives to cultivate an atmosphere of mutual respect and cooperation, embracing all students.
