Millions of Israeli parents will breathe a sigh of relief on Monday, as the 2012-2013 school year officially begins for students across the country, bringing an end to the long summer vacation.

For the first time ever the number of students enrolled in Israeli schools and kindergartens has reached over two million, a 2.8 percent increase over two school years ago.

The Israeli school system has expanded across the board, with 1,582,000 students in schools today, over 1,531,500 two years ago, and the number of kindergarten students growing from 373,000 to 423,000.
