I have 2 children currently attending Anuenue and our Ohana continuously feels that the kula has played a huge role in the shaping and molding of our children. Anuenue teaches not only the language and culture but most importantly respect. Haumana of all ages display a certain kind of respect for the aina, makua, kumu and po'e a pau. To keep it simple....Anuenue is just like a small private school tucked away in Palolo valley and the kula deserves so much support and attention from the general public. The kumu are awesome and I'm glad to see them challenge the students acedemically. In my opinion, it's evident that the parents are very supportive and active as well.
I am a parent of a 6th Grader at Anuenue School. My child has been a student here since 2nd grade and I am truly pleased with the basic philosphy of the school. Each child helps each other, from what I have observed, all the children are kind and respectful of the teachers and each other. Since the school is Hawaiian Immersion, it has the feel of a private school when you are on campus. My only concern is the curriculum and if my child is being challenged enough. Those are the issues I am dealing with right now.
