You won’t find one or two singular reasons why Huakailani “works”. Rather, it’s the sum of a lot of things that work in harmony.
Kindergarten to Grade 8 Matters
Some people believe it’s smarter to save their money to send their children to a good private school later, when it matters. We at Huakailani School for Girls strongly believe and know, that the opposite is true. Our fantastic faculty has the talent, drive and passion to advance your child. We build the foundation for creativity, a love of learning, critical thinking skills, and good study habits that your daughter will take with her no matter where she goes.
We are the only independent, non-denominational all-girls school on Oahu. The advantages of an all-girls education are numerous. Confidence and academic advancement are just two of the benefits she’ll gain by attending an all-girls school.
Small Classes, High Expectations
We assume that all our girls are capable of high academic achievement. Our curriculum follows national and state standards.
- 1:6 Small Class Size means more customized for different learning styles and academic levels. Remedial and advanced work is offered to all students as needed. No one gets ignored or lost in the shuffle.
- With only 26 students for the entire school, every teacher will get to know every student very well. We think of ourselves as “educational doctors.” If there’s any hiccup in your daughter’s educational path, we’ll see it right away and be able to quickly prescribe solutions to get her back on track. No one slips through the cracks here.
The 21st century presents new obstacles for girls and places them at high-risk during the formative teenage years. A Huakailani School for Girls foundation will instill the sturdy core values needed for a girl’s success in the world today during the formative K-5 years to the developing 6-8 middle school years.
We develop well-rounded learners with a “whole child” philosophy. Girls social, emotional, behavioral, and physical needs are different from boys. Advisory lessons and classes tailored specifically for developing a girl’s confidence and resilience. This cannot be done in a co-ed classroom.
Girls’ schools provide an environment where students feel safe to
express themselves and engage in an open and safe exchange of ideas.
