Israel Center for Excellence through Education
United States


Success breeds success and our homegrown achievements created raving fans in the U.S. E2K curriculum experts got down to work adapting our programs for export.


How Excellence Export Works


Local U.S. organizations take responsibility for day-to-day program operations and direct communication with participating schools and teachers. ICEE provides teacher training (seminars in Israel, on location, and via video conference), as well as study materials.


U.S. Locations

  • In the United States, the Illinois Math and Science Academy (IMSA) served as the founding organizer for the entire State of Illinois. For nearly 10 years, the Illinois E2K program was enthusiastically received and implemented in 63 schools across the state. 

  • In Iowa, the Belin-Blank Center at the University of Iowa operates the E2K program in five public school districts throughout the state.
