I am SO THANKFUL to have found this school! Kehillah means "community," and the sense of community and the academic, social, and emotional learning are outstanding. The educators amazing and school organized trips, group activities, sports, and clubs add to classroom learning.My son went on quite a few high school Shadow Visits and tours, and after his Shadow Day at Kehillah he was beaming because the inclusive, engaging teaching style was so awesome!
