This week, as part of the Jerusalem Education Authority's Education Week, students from the Max Rayne Hand in Hand School for Bilingual Education won several more accolades! Three groups, from 6th and 9th grades, participated in a citywide fair of 120 science projects from 60 elementary and junior high schools throughout the city. Of these, one group was chosen to take part in an international science program that will take place in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in the USA, in mid-May. The other 2 groups placed in the top 10. A second group won a national competition of science projects.
The Dear Foundation of Switzerland provides supplemental funding for the 7-9th grade science curriculum through the Jerusalem Foundation.
A flagship project of the Jerusalem Foundation, the Max Rayne Hand-in-Hand School for Bilingual Education was founded in 1998 and today includes the only integrated Arab-Jewish high school in Israel. The school has a unique teaching approach, as Arabs and Jews study together from kindergarten until 12th grade, working with and learning about the ‘other’ in every part of their studies.
