Principal's Message

Welcome to Makaha Elementary School where our school community works together to StriveHI (high).

I would like to send a warm welcome to our students, parents, community members, teachers and staff who live and work in our Makaha community.

As we move deeper into the 21st century, our children are being asked to learn new skills that will help them be successful in a global society and digital world. To help our children become global thinkers, our Makaha community will need to live and model our Makaha Elementary School vision of becoming a community of learners who inquire, reflect and apply knowledge to become responsible, well-rounded individuals.

The new common core standards will challenge our students with higher performance expectations, and the relationships we create will form the building blocks and foundation that will help us work together to provide supports for our children.

It takes a village to raise a child… and these new educational challenges will take all of us, working together as a community of learners, to help ensure our children are provided with the guidance to become successful 21st century thinkers and learners.
