NOAM represents our future.
Nothing is more precious than the education of our children.

Welcome to NOAM
NOAM is an innovative, modern-orthodox Jewish day school in the centre of Zurich providing Jewish and secular education at a consistently high level since 1980.

Our students are taught by dedicated and experienced Jewish and non-Jewish teachers. NOAM is officially recognized as a private school by the Department of Education of the Canton of Zurich, and meets all the state education requirements. The teaching of tolerance and respect for other people and the environment is central at all levels of our school.

    Primary school

    The NOAM primary school provides an excellent secular and Jewish education. Far more of our students than average go on to Gymnasium (selective high school), while many join our growing NOAM secondary school. Our students learn and live Jewish values in an inspiring, warm and caring atmosphere that strengthens their Jewish identity. Uniquely in Europe, they emerge with fluent Ivrit.

    Secondary school

    Our three-year secondary school (grades 7 to 9) offers the highest standards of secular and Jewish education. Students benefit from NOAM‘s modern and innovative approach, supported by committed teachers who bring out the best in them. In a positive and caring atmosphere, enriched by Jewish values, traditions and learning, students prepare for gymnasium (selective high school) or a professional apprenticeship.

    Integrated special needs

    NOAM supports students with special needs, and is recognized by the Department of Education of the Canton of Zurich. Our integrated special needs department ensures that students with learning disabilities are supported individually or within a small class by a special education or remedial teacher, while also remaining with their class for some lessons.

  • Achinoam


    Achinoam offers Hebrew and religious education to students who have graduated from the NOAM primary school but are not in the NOAM secondary school. They follow a varied programme that includes Ivrit, Judaism, Jewish history and Jewish philosophy.

    The NOAM Support Foundation has established a fund that ensures that no child is excluded from NOAM on financial grounds. The fund provides assistance with school fees through a repayable interest-free loan, subject to a clear set of rules.

    Development & Fundraising

    NOAM is an amazing success story. But it is costly to pay competitive salaries to attract and keep the best teachers, invest in teacher development, and finance our continuing modernization of IT and other facilities. We have no state support. Even after grants from the ICZ and other Jewish communities, and generous help from a few patrons, the school fees no longer cover our annual costs. So we need your help.
