Friends of Israel Sci-Tech Schools Inc

Build the Future of Israel

Mission

Founded in 1949, the Israel Sci-Tech Schools Network is Israel’s leading chain of science and technology charter schools. With 250 middle and high schools, vocational and industrial training centers and technology colleges of practical engineering, the Network educates 100,000 students or 1 of 10 Israeli high school students. The Network’s student body mirrors the country’s population, with an emphasis on the social and economic periphery and traditionally disadvantaged populations (Jewish secular and religious, Arab, Druze and Bedouin). Through iSTEAM education (innovation, science, engineering, arts and math) and vocational training, we seek to create cradle to career pathways to strengthen the pipeline of workers for Israel’s economy.
