We are a vibrant and spirited learning community unlike any other in the state of Hawaiʻi, public or private. We use an innovative and proven instructional model of station-rotation blended learning in the classroom that optimizes student learning and mastery. Our curriculum is fully aligned to Common Core State Standards, American College Test (ACT) College-Readiness Standards, and standards developed by Puʻukumu School. Our academic approach also includes project-based learning in the classroom and in deep nature, using Kauaʻi’s exquisite natural world as the ultimate outdoor classroom.

Our team is made up of a dedicated, energetic, and highly collaborative group of professionals who share a passion for closing the achievement gap and helping students to achieve beyond their academic and personal expectations.
