ZPC is the central educational institution of the jewish community. It is maintained by the Association for the Preservation of the Zwi Perez Chajes School of the Jewish Community of Vienna. A four-story building complex (designed for approximately 600 children) contains a kindergarten (with nursery), an elementary school with after-school care, and a junior high school. Both schools have public rights in perpetuity.
The school pursues the goals of "Jewish education, general education, personality development and integration" in a complex unity. This combination, which is reflected in all aspects of the school and kindergarten activities, forms the characteristics and uniqueness of the ZPC school.
Beginning in kindergarten and continuing until the completion of compulsory education or until the school-leaving examination, all children, regardless of their social background, are offered the same opportunities. In accordance with their personal needs, they are encouraged and challenged according to their individual talents and possibilities. It is essential that ALL children and students are given ALL opportunities with the aim of paving the way for them to become self-confident and valuable members of Austrian society.
