For the past seven years, the Darca educational network has been working hard to resuscitate failing schools and give hope to forgotten students from Israel’s periphery. For the second consecutive year, The Darca Druze High School for Science and Leadership in Yarka was selected as the best high school in Israel by the Ministry of Education. This school is not located in Tel Aviv, Haifa, Jerusalem or any other influential city – but in a small Druze village in the Galilee (northern Israel). Still, 75% of its students – the highest proportion in the country – were recognized for outstanding achievement on their matriculation certificates.
