Kaunakakai Elementary School

Kaunakakai School is located at the eastern fringe of Kaunakakai, Molokai's main town. The town and the school support a rural community rich in cultural diversity and deeply rooted traditions. Part-Hawaiians comprise the most numerous ethnic group among students, with smaller portions of Filipinos, Caucasians, and Asians. About 22 percent of the students receive special services (special education or ESLL), and 75 percent receive federal lunch subsidies.

The school services the department of education's preschool special education population on island for three and four year olds. The school's instructional program includes a strong standards-based curriculum, a school-wide character education program and a positive behavioral support system which highly emphasizes the Hawaiian values of Kuleana (responsibility), Laulima (cooperation), and Ho'ihi (respect).

Kaunakakai School has a strong commitment to their families. Active parent involvement is evident through the school's Parent-Community Network Center (PCNC), and Families and Classroom Teachers (FACT). The Native Hawaiian Education Act grant recently awarded to our school provides us with the necessary funding to improve student achievement through three components: Extended Academics (EA), Partnering Ohana-Educators (POE), and Investigating Major Interests (IMI) focusing on careers, culture, and direct experience. In accordance with Act 51, the Kaunakakai Elementary School Community Council was created to support school improvement and academic achievement of students through parent and community involvement.
