“Huakailani School has been a wonderful school for my daughter! She loves her teachers and her friends, she enjoys the hands-on projects they do and the interactive technology. We love the individualized curriculum and the caring teaching staff. At her former school, my daughter’s teacher struggled to keep her challenged in language arts. At Huakailani, they have her working at two grade levels ahead and my daughter enjoys the challenge.”
“We are extremely pleased with our daughter’s progress and would highly recommend this school to others. We realize that finances often limit people’s decisions to enroll their children in private school but we found that the education that our daughter has received is priceless and we would just “make it work” to keep her at this school.”
“Huakailani’s small classroom size was what drew us to the school as our shy daughter was getting overlooked at her previous school. Not only has small class sizes been exactly what she needed but the all girl environment has created a safe and sane learning environment.
Huakailani School for Girls creates such a supportive environment for learning. My daughter’s self esteem has greatly improved over the 3 years she has attended. She has blossomed from a shy, reticent child in the classroom, to a bubbly, talkative and participating student.
Thank you Huakailani.”
“Huakailani is young and developing school. Despite some growing pains here and there, the school continued to remain child centered and the students were always top priority. As a result this has been a very smooth running year (2011-2012), and is the best of the three years my daughter has attended. My daughter is happy, learning, and challenged. ?
“My daughter loves to learn, and loves being at school with her fellow classmates. The social troubles that are areas of problems in the bigger schools become opportunities to learn and grow at Huakailani. The focus on the arts and creativity has also provided a sort of “release” for my daughter as well. I am truly appreciative of Mrs. Brown and what she is able to do for all of the girls.”
We have 2 daughters that attended Huakailani School.I currently homeschool since we are a military family on the move. I must say that their time at Huakailani proved to be an invaluable educational experience. My youngest (who started there in K) is supposed to be in 2nd gr., but she works at almost a fourth grade level in math, and she works at a 3rd grade level in all areas of language arts. My oldest (who started at the school in 3rd grade) works easily at grade level in math, and excels at language arts as well; especially writing. Both girls reminisce on the cool experiments they got to do and neat ways they learned specific concepts.My oldest learned valuable computer technology skills that i’m sure she would not have been exposed to at other schools (she especially loved working on a community service project in which she learned claymation!).Focus on the community was a big draw for us.The school strives to have students be stewards of their community.They experienced an environment in which they learned according to their strengths, and the director and staff are open to changing things that may not be working for a particular student.Great school for esteem building!
“Huakailani is an excellent school!!! The individual curriculum that they provide for each girl in invaluable. Unfortunately, we moved this summer because we are a military family and we miss Huakailani very much! We would recommend this school to anyone. The school uses the latest technology which keeps the girls in touch with the changing world. The curriculum is also well-rounded which gives the girls the opportunity to learn about many different subjects other than the traditional ones. We would definitely encourage parents who are looking into a private school for their daughter to take a serious look at Huakailani.”
Our daughter has attended Huakailani from K through 2nd grade. Originally we only intended to have her there for K because she was very, very shy with speech delays, and we knew she needed more attention than she would get in public schools. She made such huge strides in every aspect of her education, confidence and strength of character almost immediately, we decided it is definitely worth it to keep her at Huakailani for as long as we could afford to. The teachers are really amazing with the girls, her education is very individualized to her, she loves going to school everyday and regular online and in person updates let us know how to support my daughter’s growth as well as our family needs. Huakailani constantly amazes us with very creative projects, field trips and opportunities to learn. I love the degree of parent support and the wonderful rapport that both students and parents have with the staff. The school even makes interpersonal relationships an important focus, they often help the girls to effectively resolve any disagreements in a respectful manner. I would absolutely recommend this school to anyone. It has been an amazing experience for our family.

“I am just amazed how much she has learned in this short time! The staff is wonderful. The parents all come together and work together. We love to go to school and hate to leave everyday.”
D. Buckley“Huakailani is truly holistic with lots of field trips, community service projects, art, music, and technology. All children should be able to attend a school as wonderful, supportive, and fun as Huakailani.”
