This week, the Ministry of Education published the results of the outstanding school tests for the year. Two Zefat schools, the Menachem Begin Multidisciplinary School and Amit High School, were chosen as outstanding. In addition to the prestige and municipal honor, being named as an outstanding school is a matter of financial reward for teachers. Competition for places on this coveted list is very large.
Indicators of excellence include a low dropout rate, ability to absorb special education students, IDF recruitment, civil service, percentage of eligibility for matriculation, percentage of excellence in matriculation exams and degree of improvement.
