I decided to write a review because there is nothing current. Overall it is a great school with its focus on innovative learning in a safe environment. Principal : He is very friendly and the children are not intimidated to speak out to the principal as needed Teachers: Each grade meets as a group and contribute a new innovative lesson plan so all the students get quality learning. Being a teacher myself, they are very creative on utilizing resources even with areas that are underfunded. They very resourceful. Environment: It is a very local kine environment. Safety is a big concern. The appearance of the school is very old and restrooms near cafeteria are not kept nicely. (lack of funding thank hawaii gov.) My child's experience:loves it, excited to go to school and learn. Loves the library and math. Feels safe in the class and out.
Its basically a good school with a FEW GOOD teachers who really care about teaching. Teachers need to be more attentive to children when it comes to learning because my child and other students seems to be having a hard time grasping what is being taught. Principal needs to be more warm and friendly towards parents which would benefit the school as far as fundraisers, volunteering, etc. Other than that, it's just an okay school. It really does matter to me on how the staff/teachers treat the children and parents.
I go to this school and my friends,teachers and principal are really nice to me. My school rocks!!!!!!!!!
My son attended K thru 5th and we will sincerely miss the school. The school may not have A/C or be the newest in the area but the staff is wonderful. The librarian knows each child by name and knows what books they enjoy. The teachers are wonderful, in particular Mrs. Veomette, Mrs. Terruya-Schmitt and Mrs. Chun.
I'm a parent of 1st grader and Kindergartener at Ewa Elementary School and I'd like to clarify to the last parent who wrote a comment why the playgrounds weren't being used. The reason why they weren't being used is because they were in the process of building one playground while examining the other playground which is nearby. So, logically both playgrounds were off-limits at that time. We don't want our children playing on unsafe equipment, so the school was taking precautions to make sure that the students were safe. And, if she's really concerned about her son not having enough homework then I would suggest that she talk to the teacher to get a better understanding of why he isn't getting adequate work. Other than that, I'd say that Ewa is a good school. My daughters teachers, along with the principal and staff really care about the students.
i would not recomend this school. my sons teacher does not keep up with giving him extra homework. somtimes she even forgets to give him homework. there playgrounds are not being used. we were also told that we were not allowed to sit with our child during breakfast in the morning we could only wait for him ouside. if you get a chance to try to send your child elsewhere.
