Our Mission

Wai'alae School is a student-centered school that honors the whole child. It is committed to nurturing a community of learners who strive for excellence and innovation, empowering all members of the community to actively engage in a democratic society.

Our Vision

The vision of Wai'alae School is to prepare children for the 21st century as: *Well-rounded Individuals; Capable of Multiple Dimensions *Creative Problem Solvers *Self-Confident Risk Takers *Collaborative *Socially Responsible to Others and the World

Our History

Wai`alae School first opened its doors in 1928. For many years, the school enjoyed a reputation of excellence. Its students consistently performed wells on standardized tests and by all traditional measures demonstrated high achievement and progress in learning. However, in 1990, the school community realized that to truly prepare students for the 21st century, traditional teaching practices would not suffice.

Our Beliefs

Our school is committed to self-assessment and reflection. We are always striving to refine the content of what we teach and to find better ways to impart that to children. Self-improvement often means change and so the quality educational experiences and outcomes that characterize Wai`alae School are likely to evolve over time.
