​​About this school

Kainalu Elementary's vision focuses on the involvement of all role groups in: 1) creating an environment where everyone has a love of learning; 2) promoting high expectations; and 3) creating an atmosphere that respects individuality, fosters cooperation and provides challenges and opportunities for success.

Students are taught to be self-directed learners, collaborative workers, complex thinkers and problem solvers, quality producers and effective communicators through reading, writing, speaking and use of technology. The school principal schedules walkthroughs, monthly articulation meetings with grade levels and quarterly meetings with teachers.

The Parent Community Network Center helps engage parents and military partners from the Marine Base.

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.
