Elementary

Enrollment and Size

Approximately 180 students are enrolled in our elementary school, with two classes per grade level. The staff-student ratio per class is 1:17 for Kindergarten and 1:20 for Grades 1 to 5.

Educational Program

The self-contained classroom structure is used in Kindergarten to Grade 3. Modified team teaching is used in Grades 4 and 5. The core subjects, taught from a Christian perspective, include language arts (reading, oral and written communication, grammar, and handwriting), math, social studies, and science. These are enriched by weekly Christian education, music, computer, physical education, and art classes taught by specialized teachers.

Student Activities

A variety of opportunities help each child achieve his/her God-intended potential intellectually, physically, socially, emotionally, and spiritually. School wide service projects are guided by our Student Council. Christmas programs culminate the first half the year, while Spirit Week, Mission Fair, and Spring Concerts close out the school year.

Camp

In February, students in Grades 1, 2, 3, and 5 have the opportunity to experience Camp Erdman’s environmental education program. Students will spend 3 days, 2 nights (1 day for Grade 1), on the campgrounds, exploring the Hawaiian ecosystem and participating in arts & crafts, organized games, and science activities.

Big Island Trip

To reinforce their Hawaiian studies in the classroom, Grade 4 students have the opportunity to travel together to the Big Island every March. On the tour, students will investigate the beginning of the Christian faith in Hawaii, study geology up close, and build lasting relationships with their peers.
