Kavod Charter School is consistently ranked as a high-performing tuition-free Tk-8 school not only in San Diego and California, but across the country. We know Kavod is a special place to learn and grow, but what is everyone else recognizing about our school? Here’s what puts us at the top, year after year, according to Niche.com

1. High Quality Teaching & Learning

We hire certified teachers who are dedicated to our mission and committed to providing the best possible education to students. Kavod teachers utilize research-based best practices in the classroom such as the workshop model and interactive language learning. Each teacher is an active member of our learning community, building relationships with students and families, making Kavod a great place to be. 

2. Strong Reading & Math Scores

Kavod explorers (that’s what we call our students!) consistently return test scores in both Math and English Language Arts (ELA) that are much higher than the district and national averages. Last year, 64% of our students met or exceeded proficiency levels in ELA. In Math, 59% of our students met or exceeded the standard. These high scores represent the hard work of our students and teachers and are especially significant post-pandemic when scores have fallen nationally.

3. Balanced Program

Few tuition-free programs can offer the wide variety of programming that our small school does. From daily PE and music, to dual language learning and an expansive list of clubs and electives, our rigorous program aims to cultivate the whole child. Where else can you find integrated meditation and yoga alongside immersive language learning for your 1st grade student? Service learning, global awareness and a commitment to leadership opportunities round out our balanced program. 

4. Small, Inclusive School Setting

Niche also ranks Kavod in the top 15% of California schools for diversity–proving that what makes us unique is also what makes us strong. Our structured and joyful community, which celebrates all cultures and people, provides a safe place to be yourself and get to know others. Our robust Parent Teacher Organization contributes to the sense of belonging and connection that our students and families enjoy.
