Kalihi Kai Elementary

​​​​​​​​​​About this school

At Kalihi Kai Elementary, teachers are challenged to provide all students with experiences to develop their language and thinking skills as they build background knowledge and experiences necessary to meet the new Common Core State Standards.

All classroom instruction includes the development of speaking, reading, writing, thinking and listening skills, through standards-based integrated units developed by grade-level teams. Based on the analysis of student results, each grade level team continuously revises and refines their respective standards-based integrated units that are taught consistently through the Kalihi Kai literacy system.
