At Kūlaniākea we practice an educational philosophy that begins with a genuine love of children. This core value is one of many embodied in our kuanaʻike Hawaiʻi, our Hawaiian perspective. Building upon this kāhua of Hawaiian values we hope to strengthen and enrich the Hawaiian identity in the youngest members of our lāhui, our kūpuna in training.
We nurture the spiritual, cultural, intellectual, social, emotional and character development of our keiki through 100% use of ʻŌlelo Hawaiʻi in the classroom. For parents and others who are interested we also offer resources to increase the use of ʻŌlelo Hawaiʻi in the home. At Kūlaniākea our keiki and extended ʻohana are engaged, valued, and loved.
