The Handasaim Herzliya High School (Hebrew: תיכון הנדסאים הרצליה‎‎), formerly known as the Tel-Aviv University Secondary School is a high school located in Herzliya.

The school was established in the 1960s, thanks to a donation given by the Meyerhoff family from Brazil, as a high school belonging to the Tel Aviv University.

Handasaim offers only science electives such as Computer Science and Biotechnology and attracts student from all over the country due to its excellence.

In 2005, due to Tel Aviv University's financial difficulties the school was sold to the Herzliya municipality and in 2008 the school moved to a new campus in Herzliya located near the 'Seven Stars' Mall and very close to two other schools: high school Hadash, and middle school Yad Giyora.

The school is located next to a science center which was built especially for Handasaim, but is used by all high schools in Herzliya. The science center includes advanced labs for Physics, Chemistry, Robotics etc., and is the biggest science center used by high school students in Israel.

The school supports programs such as FRC, FLL and Nachshon. The School offers three courses: Computer Science, Chemistry and Biology.

Handasaim is known to be the school from which the greatest amount of soldier-students (atuda'im) graduate from all of the Israeli schools.

The high school has been criticized for being over-funded and for minimizing the averages of other high-schools in the city, due of pulling student from the regular education system.

In the 2014-2015 school year, four plasma flat screens, regardless of the school's technological advancements, were stolen from the school. This among many other influences have added to the overall feeling of the students at the school which is summarized in the phrase graffitied all over the school: "Handasaim is the mistake of my life"("הנדסאים טעות חיי").
