Kudos must be given to Herzlia teachers who supported matric pupils on their academic journey. Their commitment to always going the extra mile has been instrumental in their success. The work of Herzlia’s Counselling and Educational Support Department (SEED) has also provided invaluable support, care and guidance to pupils and their parents, as well as to the teaching staff. Their contribution is a significant part of what makes Herzlia’s educational experience so powerful. The fact that Herzlia is an academically inclusive school makes the matric results even more impressive. This also includes 11 pupils who chose to extend themselves through writing IEB Further Studies Mathematics and English. 

Herzlia offers a truly holistic education, which is not only results-oriented, but focuses on the values, skills and relationships that pupils develop during their time as part of the close, caring school community. Support, encouragement and guidance from Herzlia’s parents, the Jewish community and the UHS Board keeps the school running smoothly.

The 2023 Matric results are not just about academic scores: they reflect the broader values, skills, and relationships that Herzlia pupils develop during their school years.
