FYI this school is using Common Core as of 2013-2014 year. But teachers, students and staff are good.

Great principal, teachers and staff. Very small school and small class size. Test scores have been going up every year for the past several years and now rank pretty high among other elementary schools. Prinicpal transferred from Aikahi, another excellent school. My daughters teacher is excellent, very well educated, and has performed miracles on my daughter. She is thriving. The only draw back to the school is the general apathy of the majority of the parents. Which says that much more about the staff.

This is a small school -- less than 200 kids. I like that about it. You get to know all the staff and the prinicipal knows each kid by name. Everyone on staff is excellent and as a school they have a lot of challenges (as do all schools in Hawaii). There's never enough money to do the best of everything for the kids, and that's all anyone wants. But these folks sure make do with what they have. There is one class per grade, except for first grade which has two. Both of my kids do well in this school.
