Darca education system thriving across the country

Amid the financial and educational difficulties faced by schools in the periphery, the Darca network of high schools has spent the past five years strengthening the pupils, teachers and principals in their institutions.

The network has set a goal of increasing both the rates of eligibility for matriculation certificates among their graduates, and strengthening the core values of the pupils, such as volunteerism and democracy.

Darca, headed by Jimmy Pinto, has grown from seven schools to 25 across the country in the past four years, serving the state-secular, state-religious and Druse sectors, with plans to expand into the Beduin, Arab and possibly ultra-Orthodox sectors.
