(terrasanctablog)  The Terra Santa School: a new school for Jericho in the oldest city in the world. It has existed since 1950, but it has been totally renovated. With a new momentum, the school body is now comprised of about 500 students and 37 teachers.

Jericho is a city in the West Bank, located near the Jordan River and the Dead Sea, with a population of about 19,000 inhabitants: an important city in the Old and New Testament.

The Terra Santa School provides an environment with areas for games, music, new rooms for students, a library, a computer room and other facilities.

A co-educational school for boys and girls, thanks to the courage of so many brothers who have worked on this project. For the city, it is an opportunity for growth on both educational and social levels.
