Our mission is to create an ‘ohana which is conducive to the recognition and development of individual talents. Thematic and experiential learning experiences are provided which focus on how students construct knowledge using creative and critical thinking. A forum for the development of the ability to recognize and differentiate a quality result or product is offered. Classroom experiences are connected to real life experiences so that students can grow in the understanding of themselves in relation to their community and the world.
Our vision is to establish and sustain a community, business, and learning 'ohana (family). Within this framework, inquiry and project-based curricula will stress independent thinking, development of the individual's mind and talents, cooperative learning, sense of self within the neighborhood and the world-wide community with particular attention to the precious and unique environment of Hawaiʻi, both as an island ecology and a place where ethnic diversity is the norm.
