Tulsa Public Schools students will be meeting students from Israel on Thursday morning, another chapter in the district’s diversity outreach. 

Over breakfast, Carver Middle School students will welcome an eight-person delegation from Nofarim High School in Tiberias, Israel.

Six students and two teachers from Carver will travel to Israel during Spring Break. The annual exchange program is part of a 20-year partnership between Tulsa and its sister city Tiberias. 

“The goal of this program is to expose students to diverse cultures and further enrich their understanding of our world,” a TPS spokesperson said.
