Kavod’s Mission

The mission of Kavod Charter School is to provide an excellent academic program while teaching modern-day Hebrew and developing socially responsible, respectful, global citizens.

Kavod is a tuition-free public school in San Diego, CA serving diverse students in TK-8th grade.

The video was developed by our explorers during COVID showing why the Kavod mission and the OLAM values support students as they learn. Kavod was one of the first schools to return to on campus learning in the fall of 2020.

Kavod’s Vision

Our vision at Kavod Charter School is to create a dynamic community of learners who explorer every learning opportunity, overcome challenges, respect themselves and others, value all communities, strive to do their best and appreciate their academic achievements and who become proficient Hebrew and English speakers. Through investing in our teachers and educational programs, our Explorers (students) will be continually challenged in order to meet their full potential.

We believe in creating a diverse community where students work together, actively engaging in service-learning projects and becoming productive members of society. In this environment, our Explorers develop the tools needed to achieve success in their continued education, careers and journey in life.

Kavod: Respect Makes a World of Difference

Kavod כבוד is the Hebrew word for honor and respect. It is a word of great strength and importance in the Hebrew language and these are the traits we want to instill in our students’ lives and interweave throughout all aspects of the school. In order to develop life-long learners, 21st century-educated people and socially-aware citizens, Kavod Charter School creates a culture of honor and respect towards education and the learning process.

Students partake in weekly activities that help them to understand the importance of respect and good citizenship.
