Located in the heart of Silicon Valley, Kehillah Jewish High School reflects the diversity of identity in contemporary Jewish and American life and welcomes not only those who self-identify as Jewish, but also anyone open to Jewish wisdom and values because they appreciate the caring, warm, accepting, and pluralistic culture.

You’ll find colleagues here who possess a deep understanding of the diverse socioeconomic, racial, cultural, disability, gender identity, sexual orientation, academic, and ethnic backgrounds present in our community.
We provide a strengths-based program where our students are supported to ensure they thrive socially, emotionally, and academically and are empowered to better understand their own strengths and learning profile. The classroom experience at Kehillah includes debate, dialogue, critical inquiry, and experimentation bringing every class to life. Each student is embraced for their individuality, challenged, actively encouraged, and supported to reach their potential as a dynamic learner. We educate our teachers and parents to support their understanding of the complexity of learning by equipping students, families, and faculty with knowledge about all our learners with strategies that help them thrive.
We look for a “growth mindset” kind of teacher, one who never stops learning. A vibrant collaborator who believes in inclusion and social justice and who is looking for a school that supports creative, motivating activities to help students acquire the skills and knowledge to live extraordinary lives of meaning.
