This school is fine for where it is and the population it tends to. My children are not Asian or Pacific Islander, but have had NO issues in the four years they have attended. They will be in fourth and fifth grades this fall, and other than moving to a different zone, I cannot see any reason to pull them out. They have enjoyed their teachers and classmates each year, and the youngest even go voted into the student council for the coming school year, so any past issues regardinig "non-local" kids seem to have gone away. My kids know prety much what I expect them to know for their ages, so the content of what is taught at Maili Elementary School is up to par.
I have had three of my children go to this school. I recive many letters and memo's for 'bullie' issues. 2 out of my 3 Has gone through great distress with this school. I'm finally done. I have removed my children to seek a much better educational experience.
This school is great compare to what it was before, my kids go there and they learn so much! there reading program is great, and there is no high violence here. My child been here for going on 4 yrs. Now. This school is one of the best on this side!
There acadamic progrmas are really good. My daughter has acheive so much this year. she was going to a different school and she was not doing so well. When we put her into maili elem. she was doing so good. The teachers help her sound out her word, help her read in her class level. iI love this shool compare to any other school on the westside of Oahu. Also they discpline the child in good ways. One day my daughter forgot her homework @ home and she was punish. She couldn't go outside and have recess and also she had to put her head on the table. I think thats a great idea now she nevers leave her homework @ home and she always make sure that it is done.
