Kailua Elementary is a wonderful place of learning, where our staff and students live out

our school values of

Honu P.R.I.D.E.

Here at Kailua Elementary, we all strive to make our school the best school on the island. A place where our students feel safe and supported and aren't afraid to take chances, share their thoughts and ideas while growing as learners.

Kailua Elementary is a place where the whole child is given the opportunity to explore and learn through Music, Art, Physical Education, Technology, and our Library. Kailua Elementary teachers are lifelong learners, passionate about the craft of teaching English Language Arts, Math, Science, and Social Studies while guiding their students when learning new concepts and skills.

Our teachers provide our student's opportunities to wonder, dream, ask questions, and seek answers about the world we live in today, so they can be best prepared to lead the world of tomorrow.

We are a diverse school of approximately

350 students with on average 2 classes per grade level, which has a small town feel. Together our 'Ohana: teachers, students, parents, and community, have created a wonderful place for learning. We encourage you to come by, visit our great school, feel the aloha, and learn more about

Kailua Elementary

Congratulations to all of our exceptional students for their hard work and always demonstrating what it means to have Honu PRIDE.

Mahalo Nui to all of our families, teachers, and support staff for encouraging our students to always do their best!
