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 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.

School Tours/Information Sessions

In order to limit distraction to our current students, unless a parent is considering Kavod for the current school year, tours of classes are only provided at the scheduled time. Kavod cannot accommodate single individual tours during the day as it is not conducive to the learning environment of our students. We currently have no more tours scheduled for this school year, but you can contact the school to obtain information.  Thank you for understanding.
