Kamehameha Schools is a private educational trust founded in 1884 by Ke Ali‘i Bernice Pauahi Bishop. As the last royal descendant of the Kamehameha line, she dedicated her assets to improving the conditions of Native Hawaiians. Pauahi’s vision of ho‘ōla lāhui — revitalizing a people — drives us to help shape a thriving and vibrant future for Native Hawaiians.
As an educational institution, students are at the center of all we do. Kamehameha Schools offers a dynamic, innovative, and collaborative work environment for individuals who embrace culture and diversity, are growth minded, and understand that pilina — relationship building — both internal and external are critical to our success. We are deeply committed to strengthening Hawaiian identity throughout our organization and finding the right people for the right roles, who bring talent and passion to our mission.
With the support of over 4,000 regular and temporary staff, Kamehameha Schools believes in enabling our students to grow into culturally engaged local and global servant leaders of their communities.
Kamehameha Schools’ current workforce is comprised of full- and part-time, on-call, and seasonal employees who work in various positions at locations across Hawai‘i pae ‘āina (group of islands), including three K-12 campuses, 29 preschools, and other regional and support offices.
