Muzot, High School of the Arts, established in September 2005 in Old Jaffa, Tel-Aviv. The school provides a unique learning environment for youth at risk. Through its arts-focused curriculum, Muzot offers students who have had struggles adjusting to other schools the chance to develop their individual abilities and gain the confidence they need to flourish. Our purpose is to give our pupils the opportunity to discover, develop, and strengthen the creativity inherent in them and to instill the ability to channel their difficulties into creation. By exposing these students to the arts, we allow them to shape not only their own personal voices, but also to become engaged members of their communities. We aim to endow each student with the skills to develop academically and emotionally so that they become independent adults. Muzot’s safe and supportive environment ensures that each student is ready for not only for the matriculation exams, but for a successful future beyond the classroom.
We are proud to inform you of our achievements which were gained with hard work of both the children and the staff.
