Our neighbors had two kids at Kehillah during this time. We had never heard of Kehillah, so we talked with them about their kids’ experiences. Kehillah, they said, had an academic curriculum that was just as robust as any of the other independent schools in the area and provided this high level of academics in a much lower stress environment.
Intrigued, my wife and I went to an open house at Kehillah, and we were amazed. The head of school emphasized the fact that despite what many might think, high school students are children. They are in a phase of rapid physical, emotional, and intellectual development, and Kehillah wants to support them in all of these areas. He said, “All Kehllah students matter and they are known. We help them develop the tools and passions to take them wherever they want to go.”
It became clear to us that Kehillah was doing high school the right way for our son, and soon after, for our daughter.
