Excellence is a choice, a way of life that is both extremely fulfilling, but also demanding and challenging. Jewish people all over the world are known for their commitment for academic and personal excellence. In a way, it is our national trademark!

At Zarkor, excellence has nothing to do with socio-economic background of a person. In fact, it is our belief that a strive for excellence transcends socio-economic background and can serve as a major merit-based driver for closing societal gaps. Israel is known for these gaps! Instead of teaching to the lowest common denominator in the name of equality that is used as a fig leaf for mediocrity, Zarkor proposes a different paradigm of closing the gaps in Israeli society – a paradigm where a child from any background is presented with an upward mobility track through excellent education.

For Zarkor, excellence is a deep commitment to maximize one’s full potential. Excellence is a culture of attention to detail, expertise, perseverance and determination. Excellence is a depth of knowledge, breadth of skill sets and creative thinking. Excellence is a commitment to a demanding code of ethics guiding our behavior towards other human beings and a society at large. Excellence is a way of life, an attribute of a leader.
