The health and safety of our keiki are of utmost importance, especially in these difficult and uncertain times.  Kūlaniākea has implemented procedures to ensure the health and safety of our staff and ʻohana as we look forward to our 2020-21 school year. 


In response to the construction of the Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT) on Mauna o Wakea, one of the most sacred Native Hawaiian sites, Kūlaniākea is issuing the following statement.


KŪLANIĀKEA has been a blessing to our ʻohana. The staff at Kūlaniakea focus on the needs of not only the individual child and the classroom as a whole, but ALSO the needs of the ʻOHANA. I have complete confidence that my keiki will grow to know who they are as a kanaka, and in turn have a strong foundation for future education and life skills.

Leilani, makua

As kanaka ‘ōiwi educators, Kūlaniākea understands the kuleana we have to both our youth and lāhui. Their instruction, curriculum and teaching approaches are deeply rooted to culture-based education which engages, supports and empowers our keiki, even at their young age.  We are so blessed to be part of the Kūlaniākea ‘ohana!

Cady, makua
