About the School
Our unique special educational school is the only school under Jewish auspices in the world that caters specifically to children with visual impairments and complex disabilities. The school is officially recognized by the Ministry of Education and is funded primarily by the government of Israel.
Our experienced special educators, expert therapists, and nurses are specially trained to help our students reach their full potentials; and our 1:2 staff:student ratio ensures that every child receives the individual attention and personal care that they require.
The school operates 6 days per week, 8:00 a.m. – 2:30 p.m., year-round, and provides for the children’s daily academic, social, therapeutic, physical and medical needs.
