Herzliah High School in Montreal is far from ordinary. The students at this trilingual school study everything from the very foundations of Western culture to its latest scientific achievements. The first of these is covered in the school's Hebrew studies program and the latter is the responsibility of Yofi Sadaka, Head of the Science Department. Ms. Sadaka is always pushing her students to new heights. They are perennial winners in science fairs and last year reached an apogee when their experiment on the formation of barium sulphate crystals was performed on the space station, Mir. Ms. Sadaka teaches in both French and English and has done work for the province's education ministry analyzing the differences between the way science is taught in the two languages.
