Waikiki Elementary is a wonderful school. It is exceptional in friendliness, true caring for children, and the academics are top notch, ranking 94 and 93% in the state assessments. The principal is remarkabe. It's no wonder it is a blue ribbon school.

Waikiki school has the ideal environment for children to learn and succeed in their life. love the fact that they stress on 'Habits of mind'.

Excellent philosophy (Habits of the Mind) that focuses on character education. Strong special education department, particularly in grades 4-6. Great after-school enrichment opportunities.

I love this school! The school has a great philosophy and is carried out by the staff. My son is having fun and learning a lot. I hope they can start a middle school with the same philosophy :-)

Great small school incorporates 'habit of mind' in all their classes. The teachers, administrators, and parents work with each other to provide a safe and productive environment for our kids. We love it.

My son attended Waikiki Elementary for 2 years and he absolutely loved it. The academics are wonderful, but above all, the school's emphasis on mindfulness makes it top notch. It is obvious that everyone, from the admin to the faculty to the staff has incredible buy in to this philosophy. It is infused in all they do. We miss Waikiki, and I would HIGHLY recommend it to any parent seeking high quality education in a caring, nurturing environment.

I have friends whose children attend private school, and they are envious of our kids who attend Waikiki. Great education (at a great price.)

I absolutely love Waikiki School. My two children have attended there since the kindergarten and I just love the entire staff. The principal is extremely caring and nice, along with the teachers and staff. They make you feel as if you were family. It is also a blue ribbon school and they have high quality of standards. I would highly recommend Waikiki School!! =)
