Not all students can say that they truly enjoy their four years in high school. At Kehillah Jewish High School, however, joy seems to be part of the curriculum.
Says the parent of a freshman in the class of 2015: “We could not imagine how meaningful a year in school could be until we saw how much our son enjoyed Kehillah. Each weekend, he couldn’t wait for Monday. We have four kids and I can tell you this is very rare. The teachers were inspirational and taught our son the joy of knowledge, inflamed his curiosity and empowered him as a person. Some people go through life without even meeting one such person and for our son to have several during one year is very fortunate. You have some magic at Kehillah.”
A graduating senior in the class of 2013 agrees: “I transferred from public school my junior year. I was doing very well academically, but I wanted an environment with similarly strong academics but in an environment where students talked about things other than SAT scores, GPA and class rank. At Kehillah I could excel and still enjoy high school.”
With 160 students, Kehillah Jewish High School welcomes the full diversity of Silicon Valley’s Jewish and non-Jewish community.

All students receive memberships to the Oshman Family JCC and can enjoy its gym, courtyard and café when they are not in class.

Students from Kehillah’s first eight graduating classes have been accepted to more than 180 colleges and universities, including every University of California campus, Stanford, Yale, Harvard, and Princeton.
