Makif He’ Darca – Ashqelon

Darca Ironi Heh high school (municipal high school) was established on Sept 1st, 2010, 22 Elul 5770 as a growing high school. The school currently has 218 students in seven 8th grade classes, plus 180 students in six 7th grade classes; plus a teaching staff of 40.

Rabbi Carlebach said: “Each child needs at least one adult who will believe in him.”
This brilliant sentence is the moral compass for our educational, value-based work, and guides us in everything we do.

The population of students in our establishment is highly diverse, creating a multicoloured puzzle that poses a fascinating challenge to the teaching staff
