A Free Dual Language Public K-8 Charter School - 858.386.0887 - info@kavodcharter.org

Academic Excellence

At the core of Kavod's program is a differentiated instruction model that emphasizes Mindfulness and Perseverance to support a rigorous curriculum. Our emphasis on Dual Language, Physical Education, Music and Art, contribute to the academic success of our Kavod Explorers.

Dual Language

Kavod's unique dual-language program provides students with mastery of one language spoken by a small population in a growing STEM industry (Modern-Hebrew) and one language that is widely spoken around the world (Spanish). This language combination provides unique opportunities for Kavod Explorers to thrive in the global workforce.

Social Responsibility

Kavod encourages socially responsible citizens through a curriculum that focuses on respect. Kavod Explorers contribute to our community through a variety of impactful projects and initiatives, and they understand how their actions can make a difference in our communities.

Global Awareness

Kavod implements a unique globally focused curriculum that teaches the importance of diversity and appreciation for all world communities and cultures.


About Kavod’s Program 

At Kavod, students value diversity, appreciate other cultures, and understand the importance of becoming global citizens.  Dual-language is a core component of Kavod’s program with students learning Hebrew daily as well as Spanish on a weekly basis.  Students actively engage in service-learning projects in order to become productive members of society. Additionally, as child-health and understanding of sportsmanship contributes to students growing into respectful citizens, Kavod is proud to continue to offer a comprehensive Physical Education and music program. The Kavod instructional model is rigorous as Kavod has a longer school day than many other elementary schools.

Kavod is a public non-religious school.  Students of diverse backgrounds and cultures enroll at Kavod regardless of any family connection to the Hebrew language as learning multiple languages provides children with immense value.

Kavod is in the process of a grade expansion. Beginning in 2019 Kavod will serve 6th grade and continue to add a grade each subsequent year to ultimately serve K-8.  During this process Kavod is applying to be an International Baccalaureate school for our middle school program.
