Hanalei Elementary School

Hanalei School is a small, rural school which is known for its unique culture. It is a public elementary school (grades K-6), serving the Princeville, Hanalei, and Haena communities.

It is one of the few schools in the state that was awarded the Distinguished Achievement Award in 2004 and 2005. The academic curriculum continues to undergo further alignment with the Hawaii Content and Performance Standards. With this, come continuous reviews and assessments of our students to strive toward academic success.

The math curriculum is in a transitional phase to include Everyday Math where situations requiring problem solving and reasoning skills are used to give meaning to the concepts the students are learning. The language arts curriculum uses resources including trained tutors, a leveled-reading curriculum, and addresses the various venues indicated in the Standards. The remaining core curricular areas are soon to be expanded and aligned to expectations.

Hanalei School recognizes the wide range of needs and abilities of its learners. The school has developed an identification process and programming for gifted and talented students, practices differentiated instruction on many levels, and services those with special needs.

The school works closely with the PTSA board in continuing to offer enrichment programs to supplement the Hawaii Content Performance Standards. The implementation of the School Community Council brings together all segments of our school community in a forum to support the school vision, mission, and goals. The vision is to be an empowered school-community that provides successful, quality education for life-long learning.
