PROJECT WEEK(S): Teaching students how to learn
At IASA's high school, Project Week is the highlight of the school year. IASA-MS has adapted Project Week to meet its students’ needs. At three different times spread throughout the school year, IASA-MS students put their regular studies on hold and pour all their energy into Project Weeks.
These intensive weeks introduce the students to the structure of advanced research and stimulate their curiosity. The first week is devoted to asking questions, the second researching resources and the third presenting information.
Students take their curiosity beyond the classroom walls, visiting Israel's museums, the National Library, nature sites, laboratories, and arts performances.
Academic achievements at the highest level now begin with 7th grade students.
