Holualoa Elementary School

Still known by its traditional Hawaiian name, the town of Holualoa derives its name from the word ""Holua"" or the ancient King's sport of sledding down a long slope at tremendous speeds.

The founding of Holualoa School in 1897 was a natural result of the growth of the village and the diverse background of immigrants wishing to carry on the Hawaiian love of learning.

Situated on the upper slopes of Mt. Hualalai in the north Kona district of the island of Hawaii, this area is known for its rich volcanic soil, mild climate and adequate rainfall optimum for small farms growing world renowned coffee, flowers, macadamia nuts and produce including cattle ranches. This artistic community is situated above the booming tourist center of Kailua-Kona, a mere three miles down slope.

Holualoa School is steeped in a rich history, committed to close fellowship with parents and community, and has always been noted for its academic excellence.

Holualoa is using research based reading strategies that is supported with a strong Accelerated Reading Program in all grades. Additionally, we are using Math Investigations, a process oriented math program to teach students to think and read like mathematicians.

In collaboration with the other four schools in the Kealakehe Complex, we have recently been awarded a NCLB Consolidated Math & Science Grant which will further strengthen the academic excellence through professional development and best practices with the Space Foundation.
