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 through daily and 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 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.
