Middle school students wearing backpacks in front of school engage in exciting conversation.

Is your middle schooler already excited about their future career? The International Baccalaureate (IB) Middle Years Programme at Kavod might be the perfect fit. Our free public school for grades TK-8 in San Diego develops well-rounded explorers with our academically rigorous curriculum which includes the potential to earn high school credit in middle school. 

Getting the Grades

At Kavod, middle school explorers can earn high school credit in Hebrew, Spanish, and Math. Preparing students for their futures through the IB Middle Years Programme pays off when they graduate into high school. By their freshman year they are already academically achieving and more prepared for higher education, making room for more subject exploration and mastering.

Bilingual Brain Benefits

The IB Middle Years Programme at Kavod challenges our explorers in nine subjects and immersive Hebrew language. The earlier our explorers learn new languages, the better they are at adapting to and achieving in an ever-changing world.

Studies show that when young students learn subjects as bilinguals, it advances their cognitive skills for critical and creative thinking. Kavod alumni regularly report that freshman year was easier than expected after graduating 8th grade here.

Explorer Empowerment

At Kavod, we empower explorers to study local, national and global ideas and issues within our IB Programme. We prepare our explorers for the challenge of high school level courses, diverse communities, and global citizenry beyond school. This opens their minds to inquisitive thought, cultural awareness, empathetic attitudes, and intellectual curiosity.
