Kailua Elementary

​​​​About this school

Kailua Elementary is committed to improve academic achievement through rigorous, engaging instruction and a focus on PRIDE: Positive Attitude, Respect and Responsibility, Integrity, Discipline and Excellence.

The school provides additional services for students with special needs, such as special education, English language learners, a Primary School Adjustment Project and counseling. The school has been able to contract an artist who provides art lessons to all classes, and students participate in service learning through school clubs such as recycling, recess, pathfinders, poster-making and video, in addition to opportunities to serve on a Junior Police Officer squad, Flag/Mail squad and student government.

All students at Kailua participate in an Academy. Teachers are assigned a group of twelve students in an area of interest such as sports, nutrition, music, fine arts, and foreign language.

A Parent Community Networking Center acts as a liaison for the school, parents and community. The School Community Council includes administrators, teachers, students, parents and community members who review and evaluate an academic and financial plan.

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.
