The school, which caters to Jewish and Arab students who are studying together, is situated on the borderline separating the Jewish neighborhood of Katamon and the Arab neighborhood of Beit Safafa. It was sprayed twice in February with the slogans “price tag,” “Death to Arabs,” “Holocaust to the Arabs” and “Kahane was right.”
