 Elsie H. Wilcox Elementary

​​​​​About this school

Wilcox Elementary boasts a character education program that focuses on developing a solid foundation of character through nine Hawaiian values: Aloha, Ho'oponopono, 'Ike, Kōkua, Kuleana, Laulima, Lōkahi, Mālama and 'Ohana. Each grade level is responsible for a value and does a presentation at a monthly assembly that recognizes students.

The school's Aloha Peace Project, an antibullying curriculum, is taught by volunteers and every student and teacher attend several days of grade-level specific courses. The school has a hydroponics green house, and several grade levels grow mini-gardens in various areas around campus. Each of these gardens is linked to standards being taught in that particular grade.

The Parent Teacher Student Association supports school projects and needs. 

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.
