The education system in Haifa pays a special attention to the education to values, to the link with jewish
sources and to the love of the country. It encourages the involvement of young people  in the life of their
district, their city, and the society in which they live. The municipality supports various youth movements
and offers to young people to take part in several volunteering programs, in enriching activities and in
many diverse leisure opportunities.
Almost 48.000 pupils study in the various education establishments of the city. Children learn from the
early age of 3 or 4 till they are 18 years old, in schools that answer to their way of life: secular, religious
or orthodox.
The education system, mainly public, provides high level secondary  studies,  scientific and computer
