Amit Girls Tzefat, Netiv Ulpanit

The Amit Girls’ School in Tzefat is divided into two tracks: the Ulpanit, which puts a large emphasis on Torah learning, and the “New Track,” which accepts girls from a variety of backgrounds. The schools, though sharing a common executive directorship, are housed in separate buildings, each with its own principal and its own characteristics.

The Ulpanit prides itself on being a strong academic and Torah minded school, while also offering many volunteer and extra curricular activities, including projects in the nearby community. The girls all complete their Bagrut (Matriculation) certificate, with close to a 100% success rate. The school directors see a correlation between the academic excellence, and the extensive social and volunteer activities the girls plan and participate in.

The Ulpanit’s Bagrut program includes a choice to major in Biology, Physics, Literature, Eretz Yisrael studies, and soon to be opened Communications. There is a fully equipped science laboratory, and a computer resource room.

The school has one class of girls per grade, allowing for a warm, accepting and embracing atmosphere. The students come from Tzfat and the nearby surrounding area, as well as from the farther Golan and Merom Hagalil yishuvim. The teachers all come from Tzfat, and are dedicated and caring.

There is a “Torah L’Shema” program, which encourages and facilitates further Torah study for those students who are interested. They spend a number of Shabbatot together, and receive extra Shiurim during and after school hours.
