Kilauea Elementary School

Kilauea School opened its doors at its present location in 1922 on 6.5 acres of land purchased from the Kilauea Sugar Company. An additional 2 acres of land was deeded to the State in 1996. The school celebrated its 125th anniversary in 2002.

The school practices a "walk-to-read" model of reading instruction delivered in small-group settings. School funding is dedicated to hiring additional part-time teachers to achieve the small group sizes. Supplemental reading programs, "double dose" opportunities, and fluency-enhancing interventions have enabled additional students to meet standards. The school continues to investigate other reading interventions to reach those students who still struggle to achieve standards in reading.

The school has recently lost its designation as a Title I school, just missing the qualifying threshold for families on free and reduced price meals. The school recently finished a successful two years as a Reading First school. This endeavor has enabling staff to increase their skills in teaching reading through professional development activities facilitated by the Consortium on Reading Excellence (CORE). The primary result has been the ability to offer meaningful and increasingly effective interventions to students in grades K - 3.

The school has a unique service learning opportunity primarily designed for 4th grade students, Malama Kalihiwai. This project offers cultural connections between the past and present through Hawaiian concepts and values. This year, all students were involved in a celebration of learning with this year's and previous years' participants and kupuna holding demonstrations and learning opportunities for the younger students.

The school has instituted parental involvement activities through the assistance of the Parent Community Network Coordinator (PCNC) and the Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA), Title I, the counselor, and the Student Services Coordinator. There is a highly enjoyable and highly attended Science and Art Fair in the spring that is sponsored and funded by the PTSA. The amount of community attendance and participation is high in that event. Science Night, Math Night, Parenting Classes, Reading/Literacy Activities, and PTSA Family Nights were also instrumental in encouraging parental involvement in the school.

Students were also afforded the opportunity to participate in the arts here at Kilauea School. The Stephen Stills Children's Music Foundation provided financial assistance in providing after-school ukulele band and choral music program experiences. The school has also benefited from the second successive year of a volunteer produced school play. These and other efforts point to the belief that we at Kilauea School are interested in educating the whole child.
