Ashdod coined the slogan, ‘From kindergarten to University’ and developed a unique model of educational continuum, allowing each and every student the tools and possibilities for self-realization and optimum preparedness for life’s challenges. All this comprehensive and complex local education system is based on Mayor’s four guiding principles: achievements, excellence, values and equality.
Ashdod endorse some of the most innovative ideas in education, such as: ICT and distance learning, reducing the number of students per classroom, music education for all students, scientific kindergarten, chess studies as part of the curriculum, promoting youth, open registration areas, specialization at secondary schools and more.
As part of Ashdod’s educational vision and in order to answer the residents’ needs, an extensive project of new academic campus was launched in 2010. The project was already praised for its environmental integration and for its thoughtful planning, allowing graduated, multilevel construction.
Mayor’s policy to encourage higher education enables each young man and woman in Ashdod to benefit from scholarships and university loans with attractive interest rates and repayment periods.
