About the project
The Shu’afat Preparatory School for Girls serves approximately 1,500 children from Shu’afat, the Shu’afat refugee camp and Beit Hanina. The school includes four co-educational kingerarten classes (approximately 100 children), a girls’ elementary school (800 girls) and a girls’ junior high school (600 girls) housed in a kindergarten facility, an original school building, an addition built in the 1990s and a small building in another location. The school regularly participates in special programs for teachers and students, including those of the Adam Institute for Democracy & Peace and the Djanogly Visual Arts Center. The Jerusalem Foundation provided equipment for a science laboratory, including equipment for experiments, television, video, slide projector and screen, human body models and scientific literature in 1996. The project was one of seven science labs equipped in Arab schools (five of them all-girls schools) by the Foundation in 1996-97.
