Department of Education (DOE)

The commitment to a quality education for all of Hawaii's children began more than 160 years ago, when Hawaii's great monarch, King Kamehameha III, established a statewide public school system. Since that time, we have continued the journey in pursuit of excellence and equity in education. Our standards set the course, while students, families, and community fill the sails with expectation as we voyage with the treasure of bright, young minds ready to lead the way to the future.

The Hawaii Department of Education, in partnership with the family and the community, is committed to student and teacheerhaving all public school graduates achieve the General Learner Outcomes and content and performance standards in order to realize their individual goals and aspirations.

High school students will have opportunities, not limited by time, for college-level coursework and program endorsements to prepare them to be successful in a global society.

Therefore, all graduates will be fully prepared for post-secondary education and/or careers and their role as a responsible citizen.
