We have just moved to Hawaii and my son is attending kindergarten. Compared to his previous school, Kaahumanu Elementary is by far the better school. The teacher, counselor and principal are extremely caring. I beieve that when a child is happy he learns. My son is so happy he wants to go to school everyday. See my son's impovement and hearig him applies dnew things he learns everyday is such a joy. This is a great school.
Excellent teachers and staff. My daughter loves this school and begs to hurry to school each morning.
My daughter has entered the 1st grade here and she is quite happy. She often says she wishes school was everyday. She loves to participate on stage when there are shows to put on for the parents and the other students. Before the day begins, they pass out rewards if you are behaving before the class opens and rewards again if you do well in class. These rewards can be redeemed for items that are available for the child to choose from. The A-plus program is great. My daughter often says, 'you're too early, I want to stay longer' and I get there at 5:00pm and A-plus closes at 5:30pm. The kids are good kids, my daughter came from a different district and she was afraid of not making friends but she has made alot of new friends and the goodbyes she gets when I pick her up is priceless.
My son entered grade 1 here, and he is quite happy. The teachers are responsive and caring. There is little physical facilities, & at a busy intersection. Little enrichment. The library books are really well-chosen. A non-demanding environment. Apparently some parents wanted to start a PTA and the school has been fighting it!? But I see meeting are continuing.
