Hale'iwa Elementary School

Hale'iwa Elementary School has been on the present school site since its establishment 130 years ago. Originally built in 1871, Hale'iwa has seen many changes in its years of existence. The daily life in Hale'iwa remains rural despite the economic shifts in the area.

Hale'iwa serves students of varied ethnic, social and economic backgrounds in grades K through 6. Most of the students reside between Waialua Beach Road, Kamehameha highway and Pupukea.

Hale'iwa Elementary School promotes cultural pride and educational pursuits. Dedicated staff, parents and community organizations work cooperatively to address the needs of ALL children. Our faculty and staff also work collaboratively with complex schools, sharing resources, problem-solving common issues, addressing complexwide curricular, and maintaining student/family support services.

Research based programs such as Reading First and Everyday math are implemented in every classroom. Varied instructional strategies help students achieve the Hawaii Content and Performance Standards.

Supplementary opportunities are available: enrichment, intersession classes in reading, math tutoring after school, A+ after school program, JPO, peer mediation and leadership club. While capitalizing on each child's strengths, the school has designed improvement efforts (i.e. staff development, fiscal resources, School Community Council) to address three major expectations for all students:

  • A literate student;
  • A responsible individual;
  • A critical thinker.

Children require knowledge, skills, processes and attitudes to succeed in school and to achieve their life goals. The school's purpose is "to develop a well-rounded, literate citizen, equipped with the necessary coping skills and strong values system in order to be a responsible and independent citizen of the world."

Hale'iwa Elementary School Comprehensive Student Support System

The CSSS provides necessary and effective student support services to help ensure that all students will attain the Hawaii Content and Performance Standards. CSSS draws together the resources of the classroom, school, neighborhood and community agencies to provide the social, emotional and physical environments that will make certain that no student is left behind. Student support connects students and their families to a system of supportive relationships and services which may vary in intensity to address the individual strengths and needs of students.


Hale'iwa Elementary School Reading Mastery Plus

Reading Mastery Plus is a research based model used by schools across the nation over the past thirty years for improving reading and comprehension. Students are tested and placed in appropriate reading levels in either Reading Mastery or Corrective/Decoding classes as needed and attend these classes during an established "sacred" 116 min. reading block daily. Emphasis is on learning to read so that students can then read to learn. Scripted lessons engage students in the correct way to learn, according to research. Students are tracked through daily assessments. Students will master letter sounds, strategies to sound out parts of words and whole word sounds, words in isolation and in context, high standards of accuracy and fluency and finally, reading orally and with comprehension.


Hale'iwa Elementary School Everyday Mathematics

Everyday Mathematics is a Pre K - 6 math program that helps students measure up to the demand for greater mathematical competence and problem-solving agility. It is one of the two elementary math programs highly recommended by the US Department of Education. The program begins with the premise that young children can and must learn more mathematics than has been expected from them in the past.

Hale'iwa Elementary School Title I

Hale'iwa Elementary has received a Title I grant from the U.S. Department of Education to help our students with their lessons and provide small group or individual help where needed. At the present time, we have ten part-time teachers. Each teacher works with specific classes and also teaches a Reading Mastery group. Each PTT has attended inservice/training sessioms so all are aware of our philosophy, the program requirements, and the needs of their assigned students. A federal program like Title I requires strict guidelines, accountability, and improved delivery of services to our student population. We believe we're meeting these requirements. Several years ago we were monitored by the US DOE and they gave us the highest rating possible. We are striving to continue at that level.
