Who We Are


Aina Haina Elementary School is located in east Honolulu, serving the children of families residing from Waialae Iki to Kuliouou. At Aina Haina Elementary School, we strive to live out the ten-character traits of the International Baccalaureate Learner Profile. We develop empowered learners who believe in taking action as a result of our learning in order to create a better and more peaceful world. Educating the whole child with an over-arching concept of international-mindedness is the vision for each one of our students. We believe every student can succeed and we dedicate resources in order to bridge our classrooms to the community and beyond. Additional information, including test scores, is located on the Department of Education School Status and Improvement Report site.
