Imua e Nā Pōkiʻi — Nā Kula o Kamehameha Tri-campus Tactical Plan

The desired state of our three campuses is to become a world-class, Hawaiian culture-based education system that engages haumāna and their ‘ohana in a culturally rich, personalized educational journey.

As a result, Kamehameha Schools graduates demonstrate character, perspectives, and competencies necessary for a thriving Lāhui.

How will we get there?

  • What you can do to ensure the success of your keiki
    • Be an involved parent
    • Ask questions
    • Attend family and parent events offered by campuses and teachers
    • Provide feedback to teachers and campus leadership
    • Volunteer

Four Key Tactics

Kamehameha Schools’ educational leaders have identified four key tactics that will take our campuses from where we are today to our desired state of becoming a world-class, Hawaiian culture-based education system.

These four tactics serve as a unifying focus for the tri-campus system:

  1. Student-Centered Learning
  2. Empowered Educators
  3. Elevate Standards
  4. Redefine Systems and Learning Environments

Read more about these tactics in the Parent's Guide to the Campus Education Plan.

Campus Calendar

This calendar was created to serve as a guide through the Tri-Campus Tactical Plan. It includes E Ola!, Kamehameha’s learner outcomes, which are illustrated through a metaphor of a thriving Hawaiian forest, where our keiki, like the many different plants, birds and other animals thrive in a nurturing and dynamic community.
