The Thelma Yellin High School of the Arts was founded in 1959, and is named for the renowned Israeli cellist, Thelma Bentwich Yellin, who immigrated to Israel in the l920s from her native England. It was her dream to establish a high school that would nurture the very special needs of artistically gifted students during their high school years. After her death, Professor Eden Partosh and a number of prominent Israeli musicians and teachers, established the school in her memory.
Thelma Yellin is a national high school; its students come from all over the country to learn in an open,
supportive atmosphere whose professional staff is commited to the ideal of helping artistically gifted young people develop skills in their chosen field of specialization, while at the same time furthering their academic education. Our program offers courses in six majors: classical music, jazz, dance (classical ballet and modern dance), drama, visual arts and film. In these, the students are offered a wide variety of practical and theoretical courses at the highest standards. Our academic program is equally rich and challenging and all of our students matriculate at the end of the 12th grade and are qualified for entrance into all universities, both here and abroad.
