Ka'elepulu Elementary School

Ka'elepulu Elementary School is one of the three public schools encircling Enchanted Lake in Kailua. Ka'elepulu means "moist blackness" which refers to the dark moss that grew in what was once an important fresh water pond on this site. Ka'elepulu School opened in 1973 and serves a student population of approximately 170 -190 students yearly in a single two-story classroom building.

Ka'elepulu School has strong support from the PTSA (Parent Teacher Student Association), the PCNC(Parent Community Network Coordinator) and the new School Community Council. Ka'elepulu School is also partnered with the Kaneohe Marines 3rd Radio Battalion, and the Pali Lions. Various opportunities are available for parents and community members to participate in the classroom and school events. The PTSA supports the Fine Arts Program in our school.

The integrated curriculum at Ka'elepulu School emphasizes critical thinking skills and behaviors to help students draw on learning through a fusion of knowledge from different disciplines. This approach to learning and teaching includes a variety of world views, strategies and resources. It incorporates real life situations for problem solving and application throughout the grade levels. TRIBES and Lions Quest add to the affective domain to balance the curriculum.

Special programs at Ka'elepulu School include the daily morning broadcast, Channel4Core; WINGS- an upper grade program held weekly to develop leadership skills; WHEELS- a lower grade program of rotating enrichment activities; Kokua Crew(gr 6 community service) and an after-school Japanese Language program.
