Kahalu'u Elementary school staff are amazing. You can tell that they love what they do and that they generally enjoy working with each other and care about each of the kids that they serve. It has a feel like you're at home. Such a great type of feel that you want for your kids. Kids are always having fun learning!

Parent engagement activities all through the year. Teachers and staff make you feel welcome from the minute you step on campus. Its like a big 'ohana there, and its like coming home. Great campus, and their May Day program is unbelievable!!

kahaluu elementary is the best elementary school on this island. losing amy arakaki was the worst thing that happened to kahaluu. i still love this school. when i have kids i want them to be apart of this school. all the teachers are great and friendly. they thought me alot when i went to school there ive always wanted to teach in that school just to be apart of that school.... . kahaluu is a great school....

Kahaluu elementary school lost its principal leadership with the retirement of Amy Arakaki. It USED to be a wonderful, caring, country school. Now its staff is indifferent. Such a loss for the students.

I think kahaluu elementary is a very good school. It's a small school, perfect for students to grow and work with each other from k to 6th grade. My son went to that school from 3rd grade and had honor roll from 4th to 6th grade. He will be graduating from castle this year. My daugther has been attending since kinder, and is in the 6th grade. The school goes thru changes as good teachers, staff and dedicated parents leave. Ever since the doe changed the grading system, the kids lost interest in keeping the grades up for honor roll no goals/incentives for them. I really think the school could do better, but it also has to do with the parents being involed with the kids school functions etc. Create a better ohana crew to to work with teachers/parents for more fun events in the future.

I don't like this school. There is absolutely no parent involvement.The children seen 'wild' and undisciplined. The curriculum is so basic. They don't work with each child's academic levels, they combine them all together. The office staff don't recognize you when you walk in the office.
