Kavod Elementary Charter School


About Kavod Elementary

Kavod is A Free Public School Providing:

-Hebrew Language Instruction

We use the language immersion model where children develop language naturally through conversation and interactions with other students and adults.

-Low Student to Adult Ratio

Credentialed teachers paired with highly trained aides ensure that every child’s needs are met through individual, small group, and whole group instruction. Kavod’s goal is a low student – teacher ratio for the majority of classes.

-Extended Learning Time

Our school year provides a full 180 day instructional school year and our school day is an hour longer than other public schools. This ensures that students have the time that they need to become fluent in two languages.

-Service Learning

Children at Kavod will participate in community service projects that develop from their own inquiries about the world around them.

Kavod cannot accommodate single individual tours during the day as it is not conducive to the learning environment of our students. Thank you for understanding.


Kavod is currently servicing students in grades kindergarten through third grade. Each year Kavod will add a grade, ultimately servicing, at minimum, grades K-5.  Kavod is currently accepting enrollments for the 2013-2014 school year for grades K-3 and accepting applications for the 2015-2016 school year for grades K-4.











Kavod Elementary is  located on the Cubberley Elementary school site at 3201 Marathon Drive in Serra Mesa.  Kavod’s campus is very freeway accessible from the 15 to the east, the 805 & 163 to the west, the 52 to the north and the 8 to the south.
