    When we made alyah, my daughter had a huge advantage in English over her Israeli classmates. if your kids join a Jewish (that is a religious) school your kids will have a large advantage in Hebrew and the stories of the Holidays. It is good to compensate for the handicap in English and all other subjects taught in the English language. Going to a public school has its own advantages as Smadar writes. To selects a good public school choose a MAGNET school. It does not matter how many white or black kids the school has. What itmatters is that there is a selection/admission criterion. Only kids that want to learn are admitted. And you'll find there a large proportion of Asians (not "asiatics" as Haaretz translated). Be Hatzlakha, sf
