Pu'ohala Elementary

​​​​​About this school

Pū'ōhala Elementary focuses on standards-based teaching and learning with an emphasis on math, reading and science.

A strong English program is complemented by a Hawaiian language immersion program where all subjects are standards-based and taught in the Hawaiian language for the entire school day. English is introduced into the immersion program on grade 5, allowing immersion students to be bilingual when they complete grade 6.

Kamehameha Schools/Bishop Estate supports literacy through The Literacy Instruction and Support Division that focuses on developing writing skills for K-3 students through art, music and cultural awareness. A College for Every Student program available for students in grades 4-6 provides mentoring, goal setting and college visitations to raise college awareness.

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.
