For today's Palestinian youth, there are four schools available: in Bethlehem, Beit Sahour, Ramallah and Beit Jala. They include 2 thousand students and 200 teachers. The pupils are 50% Christian and 50% Muslims. The selection takes place regardless of social class, origin, payment, religion and sex. The teaching is based on holistic and needs-orientated approaches and a tolerant value orientation that promotes talents and tolerates weaknesses as well.
