School's history

The school was founded as a private institution in 1934 by Dr. Alexander Koler, who also founded the Balfour secondary education school in Tel-aviv, in the year 1931. Until 1944 Ohel-shem contained both primary and secondary education classes.

The school was located in a small building on a hill in Bialik street until 1961 when it moved to its present location on Smadar Street.

Israel Artzi was the administrator and principal of the school until he died in 1978. Between 1985-1978 the principal was Dr. Issy Kahana. Between 1989-1986 Mira Hemo ran the school, Dr. David Zinger in the years 1995-1990,Adam Kenigsburger in the years 1996-2010. The current principal is Shmuel kainan (Reserve Brigadier General, ICT force chief from 2005 to 2008) . In September 2005 Adam Kenigsburger was awarded the title of "excelling district principal". The secular Ohel Shem High School has denied its students permission to pray on school premises. An average of 15 students participate in the mincha service but when the principal stopped them more students who were not even interested in praying joined them in protest against the school's anti-religious policy.
