Waikiki Elementary School

Waikiki Elementary, "Our Mindful School," is a small, caring, cohesive school with a special spirit of place. Located at the foot of Diamond Head, Waikiki Elementary opened in 1965. Waikiki's vision is to continually evolve into an ever more mindful school where thinking, collaboration and thoughtfulness are nurtured and practiced. This evolution takes place with the help of all members of the school's community striving together to provide a safe, vibrant environment that nurtures life-long learning and exemplifies harmony of heart and mind.

Waikiki School offers such programs as Philosophy for Children, Japanese, Creative Movement and Dance, Hawaiian Studies, computer, peer mediation, drama and reading improvement to support emergent readers. Partnerships with the Met program at the University of Hawaii as well as other institutes of higher learning provide opportunities for professional growth supportive of student achievement.

Waikiki's emphasis on developing thinking skills and promoting the direct instruction of mindful behaviors has not only resulted in enhanced student performance, but has led to the emergence of students with a strong sense of civic responsibility.

Waikiki, an SCBM school for 15 years, has formed its first School Community Council during the 2005-2006 school year.
