Kalihi Waena Elementary

​​​​​About this school

Kalihi Waena Elementary fosters a climate of collaboration and aligns its curricular and instructional efforts with Hawaii state standards. The school has a comprehensive network of formal and informal student supports to meet the diverse needs of its students and provide quality services.

A GATE program helps students excel in technology, fine arts and physical education. Kalihi Waena Elementary, in partnership with Fern Elementary and Linapuni Elementary, Headstart and KCCA preschools, is part of a P-3 grant to build transitions for students moving through the educational system. The grant supports efforts to have all students reading on grade level by third grade.

Kalihi Waena Elementary has benefited tremendously from the continuing partnership with the Coast Guard and other volunteer programs that have provided opportunities and experiences for the school, families and community. Parent involvement is a critical component to support the success of each student.
