Grades 7-12 - non regional for gifted students
The educational program for gifted students, in association with the Education Ministry, is intended for external students whose city has no dedicated educational program for gifted students, and for boarding students from all cities. Dedicated gifted classes follow the regular educational program, supplemented with greater depth, expansion, challenge and enrichment. The program also adds unique subjects at advanced level. Interested students may combine their studies with study towards an academic university degree, during their high school studies.
Study in gifted classes is characterized by an increased rate of study, with less time dedicated to knowledge acquisition and more time dedicated to study in depth, expansion and development of higher order thinking skills. Various teaching strategies are employed, focused on the promotion of independent learning and research, in association with the institutes of higher learning, by way of enrichment classes, seminars, and integration as students of a special status.
