Kula Kaiapuni 'O Anuenue

Ke Kula Kaiapuni 'O Anuenue is the Hawai'i State Department of Education's K-12 Hawaiian Language Immersion School on the island of O'ahu. Some students enter kindergarten with Hawaiian language proficiency from Punana Leo Pre-schools. Other students enter with little of no Hawaiian language abilities. Seventh grade students enter from other elementary schools such as Nanakuli, Waiau, Pu'ohala (Kane'ohe), and Hau'ula that have Hawaiian Language Immersion classes.

Students come from all over the island. There are buses that bring students from Windward, Central, and Leeward O'ahu. 100% of the students attend on a geographic exception. All classes and subjects are taught through the medium of the Hawaiian language except English. Through the Hawaiian language and culture, students are taught to value their Hawaiian heritage and personal well-being. The geographic setting is a lush seven-acre campus deep in Palolo Valley above Waikiki. Taro patches and aquaculture tanks complement the environment and curriculum. Pukele Stream which is part of the Ala Wai Watershed enhances the curriculum and environment.

The 2005-06 School Year marked the tenth anniversary of the school as a Hawaiian Language Immersion School. It has been accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges since the first graduating class in 1999. The school is currently accredited through 2007.

In 2002, Anuenue School was recognized as an outstanding Blue Ribbon School. However, under the No Child Left Behind Act the school has been marked as a school in status or needing improvement. Although unfair, the staff, students and parents have been trying very hard to make improvements while maintaining the essential Hawaiianess of the school.

A School Community Council (SCC) is in place at the school. The council is implementing the Academic and Financial Plan (AFP). The high school belongs to the O'ahu Interscholastic Association (OIA) and the Hawai'I High School Athletic Association (HHSAA). The school has teams in football, volleyball, cheerleading, Hawaiian canoe paddling, basketball, girls softball, and track and field. Students may participate in other team or individual sports at Roosevelt High School.

The school serves two important missions. First is to help the students learn to the best of their abilities. Second is to preserve the Hawaiian language and culture and to maintain those things that make Hawai'i, Hawai'i.
