The Religious-Environmental School in Mitzpe Ramon
Quality education is the deciding factor in a family’s ability to settle successfully in a small, isolated place like Mitzpe Ramon, and it is also the key to attracting families to the town.
The Mitzpe Ramon religious-environmental school opened with 12 students; today it is the town’s largest school with almost 300 pupils from 1st to 8th grades and over 40 teachers.
All children are welcome in the school, which emphasizes Torah and environmental preservation in a warm, nurturing educational atmosphere.
Many children in Mitzpe Ramon, located in Israel’s far geographic-socioeconomic periphery, lag behind academically and have social-emotional problems. The school itself invests in remedial tutoring and appropriate interventions to address emotional needs, using tools such as animal-assisted therapy, psychodrama and other modalities.
