Holomua Elementary School

Holomua Elementary School, home of the Voyagers, opened on August 2, 1996 as Leeward's first ""high tech"" school and the first school designed on Oahu as a Year-Round Multi-Track School. Today, we are the largest elementary school in the state with an enrollment of over 1400 students. The school community includes residents from West Loch Estates, West Loch Fairways and Ewa Gentry East.

Our staff has made a strong commitment to provide a positive climate for learning in which all students can reach their fullest potential in academics, attitudes, health and the arts. In language arts, through Kathy Au's Standards –Based Change Process, our teachers have developed "I Can" statements and created grade level rubrics for our writing and reading curriculum. We will continue to improve our curriculum through Heidi Hayes Jacobs' Curriculum Mapping and Jay McTighe's unit design process.

In August 2004, our faculty chose Everyday Math as our new math series. Our teachers have also created constructed response rubrics and a math curriculum guide for each grade level. This year, we will begin implementation of FOSS as our school-wide science program.

Technology continues to be an integral part of our curriculum. Along with a lab housing 30 computers, each classroom has 6 computers on a local area network. Students in grades K-6 use PLATO Learning, an individualized skill-building program for math and language arts. Other curriculum areas are being addressed through our integrated thematic units, guidance programs such as Families and Tribes, library program, and music program /Performing Arts.

We continue to build our parent/community partnerships through a number of activities such as our Ohana Fair, Pumpkin Carving Night and a number of parent workshops. Our PTSA continues to be an integral part of our school community. Through their fundraising efforts over the years, they have provided our school with playground equipment, technology equipment, and much needed classroom supplies. Holomua also has a number of very positive partnerships with various community businesses and a very successful military partnership with the USS Crommelin.

Holomua has been a School/Community Based-Management school since 1997. A School Community Council is now in place to ensure that all stakeholders, including community members, have input in the continuous improvement of Holomua Elementary.
