It appears that this used to be a good school since the last good review was from 2010

kawaiaha'o is a christian school based on hawaiian values and a montessori curriculum. it offers the ideal mix of strong teachers and small class sizes, with a family atmosphere. my two daughters had no problem in transition from their former program/school to kawaiaha'o. it is worth all of the tuition.

I'm currently a parent at this school and I can't say enough about it. This is our first preschool experience and my son has the greatest teachers who are knowledgable about the Montessori education they provide. They also learn a lot about the Hawaiian culture and language which we love! My family's experience has been wonderful with the teachers, administration and also other parents from my classroom. I've been telling all my friends about it.

Our son is currently enrolled in Kawaiahao's preschool & we love it. Since he is a late born child, he's been there almost 3 yrs. The program is great & the teachers are very nurturing. Their Montessori curriculum has been a wonderful foundation for his educational future. We're so pleased, we are planning to send our daughter to Kawaiahao this year.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
