Kalihi Elementary School

Nestled on the slopes Upper Kalihi Valley of the Koolau Mountain range, our school educates children from the Valley and the Kalihi Valley Homes public housing. We are one of nine public elementary schools in the Farrington Complex.

Our population is described as lower-middle to low income with 70% of our families qualifying for public assistance and eligibility for free or reduced meals; a varied ethnic composition with the largest representations of Filipino (39%) or Samoan (23%), Part-Hawaiian (14%), all others (14%). 28% of our students are English as a Second Language speakers who require ESLL services.

To address the needs of our student population, our school has adopted Edison Alliance as our School Reform provider for SY 2006- 07. Our goal is to have all learners set high expectations, to provide challenging curricula and effective teaching and learning. We believe all students can learn and by setting standards high, we will increase student achievement levels. We utilize the resources of our partners in education which include the U. S. Navy, the Family Resource Network Center, Ohana Computers, and the Read Aloud Program. These as well as other community and business partnerships help to support our students and their families.
