Princess Ruth Ke‘elikōlani Middle School

​​​​​About this school

At Princess Ruth Ke‘elikōlani Middle, educators believe the key to high academic achievement is through the implementation of evidence-based instructional practices in the classroom with fidelity, strong relationships between and among all of our stakeholders, rigor and relevance in the curriculum and instruction, and a plethora of learning opportunities to prepare students for high school, college, career and life.

In addition, the school values professional development activities that focus on using formative assessments to drive instruction and making informed decisions, implementing research-based instructional strategies, and using data teams and professional learning communities to analyze student work and achievement data.

Previously known as Central Middle School, the campus name was restored to its former name honoring Princess Ruth Keanolani Kanāhoahoa Keʻelikōlani. See news release here.
