​​​About this school

Kahala Elementary has an enthusiastic and active parent teacher organization that supports efforts to provide an enriching curriculum and activities.

The school has two PC labs, a Mac lab in the library, as well as iPads, SmartBoards and classroom desktop computers in the classroom. Students may participate in band, art, and sports such as golf and karate and hula, to name a few. Kahala Elementary also provides reading assistance, services for English language learners, counseling for students in need and special education services, in addition to an enrichment program for children in grades 3–5 that focuses on sustainability.

Academic Plan & Financial Plan

Every school develops an Academic Plan as part of collaborative process with its School Community Council, staff and Complex Area. ​The three-year plan provides structure for a school's plans for improvement, achievement and innovation. The companion one-year financial plan outlines anticipated expenditures to realize the vision of the Academic Plan. Both are aligned to the state's 2017-2020 Strategic Plan.
