Hālau Mauli Ola builds and extends upon the ‘ike mauli (foundational knowledge) through ways of knowing extended beyond the regular school year and to allow you to prepare for what is beyond high school through college, career, and life learning educational opportunities. The program offers credit advancement for high school students seeking to earn required and/or elective credit(s) for the 2020–2021 school year. KS also offers college courses that will allow high school students the opportunity to earn both college and high school credits simultaneously.
Hālau Mauli Ola creates pathways of learning opportunities upon which a student is able to travel upon knowing their own ‘ike mauli in setting their own course in their high school career. A meheu refers to the trails that was traveled upon by those before us. A meheu can be smooth, trodden, or beaten – yet it honors those who have come before as both a level of respect and a catalyst to move progressively forward. Hālau Mauli Ola establishes three meheu for our students:
