Supporting Statement

Carmel is committed to teaching students about, and fostering a love for, Jewish values, traditions, history and the Hebrew language. We draw on the best innovations and developments from the wider Jewish world. Our personalized approach, with emphasis on growing caring, compassionate, global citizens, produces students who are independent thinkers and communicators who will become leaders and contribute to the wider world.

Our Ethos

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 more knowledgeable and committed to Jewish tradition.

Carmel is an accredited IB continuum school offering the IB Diploma, Middle Years and Primary Programmes. We empower our students to achieve the highest international educational standards measured against other leading international schools in Hong Kong and top private schools abroad. Faculty are qualified and talented teachers, and their personalised approach enables 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. Carmel strives to cultivate a caring atmosphere where students show mindfulness, mutual respect and cooperation to all.

Experienced administrators ensure open and effective communication with all stakeholders. Through a generous teacher/student ratio and curriculum delivery that caters for a range of learning styles, the School provides a supportive environment that develops students’ confidence, aspirations, imagination and skills, in both academic and social spheres.
