Keolu Elementary School 5

My son went here for Preschool, his teachers Mr. Kojiro and Ms. Karen were great. When he first started going there, he was a little scared and stressed because his dad had just deployed (USMC), but his teachers and the office all worked with him and he ended up BLOSSOMING! He is such an OUTGOING, SMART, OBSERVANT child! I couldn't thank this school enough. We only took him out of the school because we live closer to another elementary. I would definitely recommend this school to family and friends!

Ms. Karen, my son adored you. You made him feel so secure about being in a new place with new faces. You taught him how to trust and not be so scared. Also, Mr. Kojiro, I know you were busy a lot but the days you were there, my son could not be happier. He talked all the time about what you all did and I will never forget how you gave him a new plant because he drowned his

At the end of his time spent in keolu, he came out of that school telling me how he wants to be a doctor and also go to mars. I believe his teachers are very effective

Starting at this school my son was not used to being around children his age but they worked with him and taught him alternatives on how to problem solve and also were very informing to keep myself in the loop. They truly are ohana!

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.
