Jerusalem Students Achieve Top National Scores

For Israeli high school students, the national matriculation exams are all-important. The results can determine their futures: their place in the universities and the army, their job prospects — are all shaped by their matriculation scores. Starting in the 10th grade, the exams increase in frequency and difficulty. 

In the January 2011 matriculation exams, the 11th grade students at Hand in Hand's Jerusalem school scored an average of 90, the highest of any class in the Jerusalem region.  The national average on this exam was 69. 

Results for other matriculation exams were also impressive. In Hebrew language, the national average was 71; at the Jerusalem school it was 91.  In English, the national average was 78, with Hand in Hand averaging 89. In biology, the national average was 78, while Hand in Hand's was 93.5. In mathematics, the national average was 82, with the Hand in Hand students averaging 95. 

In fact, in 10 of the 12 winter matriculation exams, Hand in Hand students scored higher than the national average and sometimes significantly higher.

The Hand in Hand education is exceptional not only in developing citizens with sensitivity to and awareness of the complex issues facing society, but also in providing a superior education in the basic subjects of high school.
