Beit Haggai follows the Miftan curriculum, that was specially developed to suit the needs of our students. Sessions take place from 8:00 AM to 3:00 PM daily, in small classes (5-12 students each). The program combines classroom instruction and vocational training workshops:
Jewish studies: Torah, Prophets, Talmud
- Physical Education
Creative Vocational Workshops:
- Landscape gardening and livestock raising
Our staff makes sure that every student takes matriculation examinations and vocational certification tests in the occupations of their choice. All who complete their studies at Beit Haggai will be eligible for a partial or full matriculation diploma and for professional certification by the Ministry of Economy and Industry as a carpenter, metalworker or gardener.
The curriculum is individualized and adapted to each student’s abilities, in consultation with top-level specialists in education. The Miftan School’s dedicated professional staff consists of the principal, homeroom teachers, special education teachers, a corrective studies teacher, vocational training instructors, English and mathematics teachers, a physical education teacher and a fieldcraft instructor.
Students gain practical experience, working together with vocational instructors on individual projects and externally commissioned work, enabling students to acquire additional skills while earning money for their efforts.
