School Mission

"Aina Haina strives to be the Heart of our Community where: ...Every child matters and has a gift to share ...Teachers and staff are dedicated, collaborative and caring ...Families and the community partnerships are supportive and involved so that the academic learning environment, enriched by the arts, athletics and altruism, enables each child to participate productively in our global society."

School Description

Aina Haina Elementary School is located in east Honolulu, serving the children of families residing from Waialae Iki to Kuliouou. Parents participate actively in their children’s schooling and support the efforts of the school. This PTA support has enabled us to provide instruction in art, music, and dance in addition to academic subjects. The school offers a technology-rich environment with both wired and wireless connection to the internet and multimedia computers in the classrooms and computer labs. Starting with the 1999-2000 school year, we provide Japanese Language instruction to all grades. Additional information, including test scores, is located on the Department of Education School Status and Improvement Report site.
