Both my children attend this school. It is located right at the foot of the Koolau mountains and is a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere. The campus is kept to a high standard of cleanliness and the grounds staff do a wonderful job of keeping everything neat and tidy. The students are involved in helping tend the garden beds and keep the flowers and plants growing healthy. The school has a garden club and a healthy lifestyle program that encourages sustainable living and nutrition. The teachers and staff are always courteous and caring. The office staff and principal work hard to keep communication open between parents and their children. In the past two years, I have been very happy with this school.
I love this school! There is a wonderful family feel. There are many wonderful teachers, the students are respectful and kind. many of the families give hours of volunteer time, and the new principal is fantastic. I'm so glad my kids get to come to this school.
I am a newly hired member of the staff at this school and have been very impressed with what I have experienced at this school. The new principal is wonderful. She works tirelessly for the students, faculty, and staff. The teachers are excellent, with a good blend of experience and fresh perspective. The PTO board are hard-working, dedicated, and friendly. The office staff are friendly and knowledgeable. The support staff, including the custodians, EA's, and lunchroom workers care so much about the students and work incredibly hard. I would send my own children to this school!
My daughter just finished her first year here, and she loved it! Great experience, great teacher!
Just wanted to thank EA Kathrine Chung, for all her help with children in the class. Next years six graders should be so fortunate.
I agree, the teachers are what makes the school special. I cant say the same for the principal.
My son has attended Ahuimanu for the past two years and is currently in first grade. I am extremely impressed with this school. My son loves to go to school and is excelling. He is even learning Japanese and Hawaiian. Many say public schools in Hawaii are not good, however I do not have that same impression. Bravo Ahuimanu for a creating such a positive and supportive environment.
I was very disappointed with Ahuimanu. The administration doesn't enforce discipline like they used to.
My sons attended Ahuimanu. They both had Ms. Jane Kishimoto in Kindergarden. I still believe Ahuimanu was the best public school in Hawaii. It gave my sons their start in life & the education they received there prepared them for what they have accomplished today. Mahalo, Ahuimanu!
