Parents,

If your child is not returning to Aina Haina for the 201-18 school year and they are currently in grades 3 or 4 and you would like a copy of the score report, please drop off a self-addressed stamped envelope at the office or you can also request to come pick it up next year when it is ready. If your child is currently in grade 5 and will be attending another public school for 6th grade, the score reports will be forwarded to that school. If your child is attending a private school for 6th grade, you can also send in a self-addressed stamped envelope or request to come pick it up at the office.

Thank you,

Aina Haina Elementary is an IB Authorized World School!

Dear Parents, Guardians, Community Members, and Friends,

We received the exciting and historic news on June 23
rd, 2016, that our school, Aina Haina Elementary, is now an authorized International Baccalaureate (IB) World School for the Primary Years Programme (PYP). As a result, we have now joined the IB community of schools which span the entire world. Very few elementary schools—of both public and private schools in the entire State of Hawaii—have achieved this international recognition and distinction. Since embarking on our journey to become an IB authorized school in May of 2010, many helping hands have contributed in building this tremendous educational programme for our students which incorporates inquiry and sustainability. First of all, special appreciation and thanks go to our former IB coordinator, Mr. Jon Taguchi, and also to IB coordinator, Mrs. Deanne Yoshioka, for their leadership and support in getting our school to authorization. Secondly, I would like to thank all of our former and current teachers and staff for their tremendous hard work in building the programme; their great efforts helped to teach our students to exhibit the attributes of the IB Learner Profile (Inquirers, Communicators, Caring, Knowledgeable, Balanced, Principled, Reflective, Courageous, Open-minded, and Thinkers). Last but not least, I would like to thank our current and former parents and guardians, our current and former students, as well as the entire Aina Haina community for everyone’s collaborative spirit, your awesome support, and your spectacular efforts. Without each and every one of our school’s stakeholders, we could not have achieved this historic accomplishment. As we enter the 2016-17 school year, we can now celebrate that we are an IB World School. Congratulations to everyone in our Aina Haina ‘Ohana! Go Jaguars!

Your Partner in Education,
Brendan Burns, Principal

Principal's Message

January 23, 2017

Dear Parents, Guardians, and Friends,

Aloha and happy new year to everyone in our Aina Haina ‘ohana.


Someone once said: “Those who have no time for health today, will have no health for time tomorrow.” In alignment with this saying, here at Aina Haina, we value the importance of health and wellness for our students. In accordance with this, as we have begun the New Year, we received word that our school was awarded a Wellness Award from the Hawaii Department of Education for our school’s various programs which encompass supporting our students in living a healthy and balanced lifestyle. We were one of only nineteen schools of the fifty-two schools in the Honolulu District to receive this award. Being balanced—which involves achieving personal well-being intellectually, physically, and emotionally—is one of the ten traits of the IB (International Baccalaureate) learner profile.

AHS Specialty Programs

In alignment with our school's vision, which is, "To explore and excel through academics, arts, and athletics," Aina Haina Elementary School offers numerous specialty programs in order to support the learning of the whole child.
