Shlomi High School
A unique school embracing Shlomi’s religious and non-religious pupils.
United Jewish Israel Appeal (UJIA) spearheaded efforts to establish a unique junior and senior high school embracing Shlomi’s religious and non-religious pupils.
Until relatively recently, the development town of Shlomi in the northern Galil, was without a high school. Parents had to send their children to one of twenty different places outside the town.
In September 2007, the high school began operation in makeshift facilities. In September 2010, The Esfandi-Isaacs ORT Shlomi Secondary School opened.
The state-of-the-art campus includes a junior high, comprising nine classrooms, four laboratories and supplementary study rooms, and a fully equipped senior high school. It also houses a library and Beit Midrash. UJIA is supporting the enhancement of the educational programme at the school to ensure success long into the future.
The School’s guiding principle is that every pupil is entitled to realise his or her full potential and is ultimately capable of achieving a full university-level matriculation. In a few short years pupils, teachers and parents have achieved a lot and continue to go from strength to strength.
