Kamali'i Elementary School

Kamali'i Elementary School was the first school in the State of Hawaii to be built in partnership with a private developer; Everett Dowling and Co. Kamali'i opened on August 19, 1996 as a year round school and was the first public school in the state to adopt the wearing of school uniforms. We will celebrate our eleventh year of operation on August 19, 2006. As of 1999-2000, Kamali'i became an SCBM school, and May of 2005 we held our first School Community Council elections.

Kamali'i has a student population of approximately 720 students, with 29% receiving free or reduced lunch. The school has developed a highly differentiated placement model and has become a "lighthouse school", visited by teachers and administrators from throughout the United States. Additionally, Kamali'i has significantly invested in technology with over 300 modern computers and a filming studio.

Demographic data indicates a varied ethnic population with significant numbers of families falling in the medium to high income range. Based on economic data for the community, we know there is a rapid escalation in housing costs. Consequently, we are anticipating a down sizing of our student population as a whole, and a proportional increase in students from lower median income families, within our school At Kamali'i, students are assessed with STAR, a computerized assessment system. Third, Fourth, and Fifth graders are also assessed with the Stanford Achievement Test.

Our Kindergarten students are also assessed with the Phelps and other developmentally appropriate instruments. As part of our goal to address student achievement, we have used testing at the end of the school year to place students in transition classes, accelerated classes, and heterogeneous classes. All of the restructuring ideas have come from striving to meet the needs of our Kamali'i students as evidenced through our testing.

In the 2005-2006 school years we have added two new special education pre-schools, where children are given a jump start on their educational development. Character Education is a very important component of our school climate focusing on values such as Love, Justice, Loyalty, Respect, Courage, and Hope. Parental involvement is strong and there are over 13,000 volunteer hours spent assisting our teachers in the classroom, on field trips, on the playground, in the library, and in the cafeteria.

Kamali'i Elementary School is very fortunate to have a strong PTA and benefits from the various activities sponsored by the PTA. We are very proud of our students, teachers, and staff members who come to Kamali'i Elementary School.
