Vision We aim to educate our students for life in an advanced urban environment, which strives to maintain rich communal life in several aspects: culturally, socially and civically. We believe there is a way in which we can preserve the sense of belonging and intimacy amongst residents of a major metropolitan area that may occasionally experience a sense of alienation and seclusion. We must search for a way in which a person can be involved and become influential in his / her respective community's every-day affairs from a young age, in order to promote social equality amongst different parts of the urban population. The Ultimate Aim We aim to promote meaningful and relevant learning for the necessary skills and realities of the 21st century while encouraging students to acquaint themselves with both their social and physical environments, and to take an entrepreneurial initiative within their urban and communal surroundings. From Theory to Practice Three dimensions of education guide our practices: pluralistic, political and global education. We seek to promote a critical, challenging and proactive discourse on civil issues and social injustices through discussions, conversations and meetings with leaders and inspiring people. We combine a variety of fields of study and entrepreneurial skills that allow students to experiment with initiating and leading projects, for example: in the course "Responsibility to Israel 2048" in the general education framework, the students are required to initiate projects that encourage public and communal responsibility. Within the framework of a unique trend of urban innovation, students are asked to promote responses to the challenges of the city in the future. In addition, the "Future Entrepreneurs of Tichonet" team of 24 students was established to learn how to initiate Startups from the very first stage to a significant prototype. We promote global learning of young people around the world on common universal issues through online learning (such as blogs or video conferences). The students take part in various projects: "Global Scholars", Tony Blair's program "Generation Global" and youth exchange delegations on various subjects (such as "the Berlin Youth Delegation" on the subject of gender during the Holocaust, and today in Berlin and Tel Aviv).
