Run as fast as you can! Kids are treated like prisoners in this bland, lifeless school. Made to walk in a straight line , hand behind their backs and head down when going from class to their 15 minute lunch break or recess in the shadeless grass patch with no playground equipment ( unless you could a few hula hoops and balls)... Basically zero supervision -1 teacher to 130+ kids! If your child is at all meek be prepare them to be bullied since the administrators don't care. It is so sad. So much potential in these kids just wasted. There are a few teachers that want to make a difference but it is hard when met with total indifference. I hear in the community that the principal is a racist too. Your mileage may vary with her if you look like her though. No wonder they don't allow parents to tour the school. They have plenty to hide.

All of the school personnel are very dedicated! The system for monitoring,tracking and supporting student progress has been so successful and increased our student progress yearly. The school is innovative, diverse and a leader in the district in providing systematic interventions.

It has an incredible principal! The staff is on call - I mean I work in government and when I call - they answer and follow-through! Their leader is the best - and they have a great team of volunteers and teachers! I love them and they are essential for a healthy community!

The school campus is well maintained and the students appear to respect their institution and environment by helping to keep it so. Education is not just textbook learning, it must necessarily include awareness of our environment and surroundings to include pride and respect for what we have and other people. The staff at this school appear to be working together toward these goals.

Social behavior of students are excellent. See it every year at their Spring (MayDay) Festival, have not missed a year since our children, grandchildren and now our great granddaughter goes to this school. The students display, respect and talent and they have great teachers.

My ex went there, both my children went there and now both my grandchildren attend Konawaena Elementary School. They have great teachers, they take pride in educating our children. The grounds are kept clean and well trimmed. The Parents help and get involved in promoting education, safety and over all participation in our childrends development and growth. I'm very proud of Konawaena Elementary School.

Konawaena Elementary is committed to academic excellence. In the recent past many changes have been made to the curriculum to maintain rigorous expectations that prepare children to be problem solvers in the real world. There are intervention programs to help children who are behind and efforts to enrich the learning for those who are ahead. With solid programs in reading and math as the basis for educating the children and deeply committed teachers and administration, Konawaena El. is moving towards being one of the best schools on the Big Island.

We are moving to Texas to get away from this school!We are so disappointed with it.My daughter is autistic and it is constantly a battle to get what she needs.They always refuse to help her and say she is doing great.Konawaena Elementary School is not the place for your child whether disabled or not.The academic programs are at least 2 years behind the mainland especially in math.All the extracurricular activities are not available.And the parent involvement is such a tiny amount that they have problems with their fundraiser's.
