Who We Are
Friends of Israel Sci-Tech Schools is a U.S.-based 501-C3 organization. We are dedicated to supporting the Israel Sci-Tech Schools Network located in Israel. Founded in 1949 the 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 in 60 municipalities, 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 (secular and religious Jews, Christian and Muslim Arabs, Druze and Bedouin).
You will soon be able to read about our long-standing partners and supporters, from individual beneficiaries to industrial giants, from Government Ministries to the Israel Defense Forces and international foundations. Check back soon when the section is open.
