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
