The school

  

The High School

 

Hakfar Hayarok's high-school is one of the most advanced of its kind, which incorporates advanced teaching methods. Within the framework of the "22 Project", the school
demonstrates alternative methods of teaching and student assessment. Our school is constantly developing new student-oriented teaching methods, adjusted to the needs of each student. Indeed, the student is the focus of our system, and it is his or her needs which determine our approach. We believe that every student has the potential to achieve and to grow; more, each student has the right to do so.

 

Our approach is based on the basic assumption that every student can achieve; it is our duty to make this possible. Our task is to create a warm environment, relevant to the demands of modern society, which challenges the student with the help of meaningful, exciting teaching experiences. This environment encourages the growth of a thinking person who believes in his or her potential and feels part of his or her society.

Within the school, various majors are offered in the fields of natural-sciences and agriculture, music, multimedia, fashion design, computer-aided vehicle diagnostics, electronics, and information systems.

 

  

The Junior High School   

7th , 8th Grade Mofet Science Classes

 

Highly motivated students scientifically oriented study in the "Mofet" classes The subjects taught in this program are mathematics, chemistry or biology, computers, English, Russian and French language and literature. University scholarships are granted to students who begin their academic studies during their high school years.
The purpose of Mofet is to prepare students to take the matriculation exams during the 10th and 11th grades so that they can start their higher education during the 11th-12th grades.

 

7th - 9th Grade Natural- Science Classes

 

The fields studied in this program are biology and animal behavior. Students gain practical experience when working with farm animals and pets in a Zootechnologica Center located in the village.

 

  

 

The Youth Village: (living accommodations)

  

Most of the students live in the youth village, which is their home during the period of their high-school studies. The village is lodged in a series of small houses surrounded by gardens which are cultivated by the students, and afford a high standard of accommodation. Life in the youth village offers the students a living experience which is culturally rich and shapes their social maturity and expectations for the future. The students live in a co-operative society in which they play an active part; this teaches them social skills and raises their self-esteem. Youth counselors and 'house mothers' live within the youth village, near their charges, and accompany them every step of their life in the Kfar. An advisory team composed of a psychologist and a social worker also are ready to help the students whenever needed.

 

 

 

Extra-curricular activities  

The students can also avail themselves of a gym. They can take part in basketball games, aerobics, table tennis, martial arts classes, 'military fitness' classes, athletics, weight-lifting and play on the Kfar football team. Cultural activities include classes in drama, dance and painting. There are a Film Club, and a hiking group. Musical activities include classes in percussion, guitar, piano and even one of the best choirs in the country.

Students living in the Youth village experience democracy directly. At the beginning of each year elections are held for various councils in which the students play an active part in managing the Kfar, including a student's court and the student newspaper.

 

  

 

  

The Levi Eshkol 'Green Village' (Hakfar Hayarok in Hebrew) is, as its name implies, a green haven in the bustling, Central Sharon area in Israel

  

This is a youth village which combines modern high-tech studies with practical work experience in various fields, in such a way as to develop the students' self-confidence and enable them to experience achievements. More than 1000 students between the ages of 12 to 18, both Sabras and new immigrants live and study in a warm and supportive surrounding.

Hakfar Hayarok is an educational institution whose aim is to empower the students materialize their inner potential.

It teaches the student to take an active part in all the village activities; The essence of the Hakfar Hayarok is based on co-operation, responsibility and teamwork. These values are supposed to help the student become an autonomous, responsible and independent citizen who is prepared to contribute to society.

Our educational credo is to enable students, both external and internal, study in optimal conditions, so that they can materialize their potential, extend their knowledge and improve their intellectual achievements. Our aim is to guide them materialize their capability in order to improve their chances for mobility in the future. They share the experience of dealing with problems, companionship and social solidarity while accepting and respecting one another.

The external students' needs are being met by , a nutritious lunch (a hot meal) in the dining room, helping classes after school hours, a wide and supportive studies plan and an advanced, up-to-date computer lab.

The students are also provided with modern sports' facilities, an on-campus gym, after-school activities, and a swimming pool (summertime only), all included, free of charge. Transportation is granted to and from many locations, all over the country, at special, subsidized prices.

The three elements of Hakfar Hayarok are the school, the farm and the youth village
(the living accommodations.) These work together to offer the student the best
of all worlds.

 

 

The farm

  

The farm plays an important part in the student's life, and is among the biggest and most advanced of the agricultural school farms in the country. It is run mainly by the students themselves and contributes to their sensation of belonging, of playing an important part in their environments. This is enhanced by the fact that the students allocate work rotas and are fully responsible for the day-to-day running of the farm. The farm poses daily challenges and real-life problems which the students must solve, by themselves if possible. This has an important role in developing the personality of the students and in giving them emotional satisfaction. The fully-equipped farm includes such departments as animal husbandry - cows, chickens and horses - field crops, fruit-orchards and a modern garage which services the mechanical equipment. There is even a small zoo!
Selected agricultural studies form part of the school curriculum, within the framework of the Life Sciences department.

 

  

 

 

  

Youth Exchange Program

In cognizance of the importance of the young generation's exposure to their mates around the world, Hakfar Hayarok is engaged in various programs of exchanging youth delegations from different countries. 

This cultural immersion program is coordinated and supported by the 

Israel Youth Exchange Council

whose basic concept  enterprises the assumption that becoming familiar with the mosaic of people and cultures around the world assists in structuring a foundation of common values of tolerance, democracy and respect for human rights .

The "youth exchange" aims at providing a unique, mutually enriching, high-quality and personalized exchange experience. It broadens the knowledge and acquaintance of partner countries. The intercultural meeting and interaction between Israeli and multinational and multicultural youth worldwide enhances and reinforces friendships which are anchored in an atmosphere of mutual respect, comprehension and exposure to diversified cultures that brings about educational, cultural and social cooperation

Hakfar Hayarok's  youth exchange initiative acknowledges the value of exposing youth around the world to diverse cultural settings. We offer students from various countries the opportunity to visit Israel and partake in tours, field trips, and other educational activities, which expose them to the many facets of life in Israel. Students have host families with whom they stay on the weekend, while during the week they take residence on campus. In exchange, our students travel to other countries and are hosted by families of participating affiliate schools.  . 

Our students visit host families for 7-10 days during Spring. The following Autumn, students from the host families abroad visit Israel and are hosted by the families of the youth who they hosted the previous school year.

The Students' Learning Center 

Our students are highly motivated as far as learning is concerned.  Most of them know that a Matriculation diploma is the “ticket” to success in the multi cultural Israeli society.. The goal of the Student Learning Center is to open new learning channels which will enable students to succeed.

They get the "One on One" support, which enables them to make progress according to their individual pace and build their self confidence. The “ Student Learning Center ” is the optimal solution for our students. It is the key to their success.

  

 

 

Hakfar Hayarok as an Experimental Youth Village.

Introduction:

In 2004, Hakfar Hayarok made the first steps towards becoming an experimental youth village, with the support of the Entrepreneurial Department of the Ministry of Education. The basic concepts of the experimental youth village are being developed according to the educational approach of the village: humane and democratic education, tolerance, acceptance of the environment, and connection to the land.

Rational.

 

The experiment aims to design a 21st century youth village, centering inter-relations between the human being and its surrounding. That type of youth village is concerned with enabling the building of the person’s identity, one who is capable of dealing with changes, make decisions and comprehend their meaning and consequences.

The experiment aims to convert Hakfar Hayarok into a youth village concerned with developing an environmental-social leadership which provides educational services, values and culture to the surrounding community.

Objectives:

1.Building and developing a youth leadership, designated to position the relationship between man and his environment at the center of the public agenda.

2.Converting the farm into an academic lab which will function as a main source of empowerment, development of the student’s abilities, socialization and construction of the personal identity.

3.Intensifying the connection between the village and the surrounding communities, and recognizing the specific elements of the village’s agricultural foundations that are able to serve and enrich the urban community’s ability to deal with environmental-social issues, such as: restoring and preserving the environment, the person's and the community’s welfare , etc

 

 

 

The Gifted Students Project.

Hakfar Hayarok and the Gifted Students Department of the Ministry of Education offer a special program for gifted students who have been evaluated as such, by the Karni Institute in Kfar Saba.
