Mission for Kilauea School
Welcome to Kilauea School!  It is a blessing to have the opportunity to continue serving the keiki of the Kilauea School community.  We at Kilauea School strive to inspire students and staff to recognize and build upon their natural gifts and talents in order to attain their greatest potential.  Our commitment to helping your child have a sense of belonging while developing his/her social, emotional and academic skills, is found in our mission to the right: 
High academic achievement and character development continue to be priorities.  We dedicate time for teacher collaboration and data teams as well as providing an instructional coach.  All teachers are able to reflect on their instruction, discuss school data, align curriculum and explore best instructional strategies to meet the needs of all learners.  As a result of believing in our students’ abilities to learn and closing learning gaps early on, we help the students to develop a love of learning which sets them up for academic success.
Quality instruction along with partnerships with parents and the school community are essential building blocks in a child’s education. The key to an effective school partnership is good communication between home and school.  By working together, we ensure that our students have optimal support in building connections between what is happening in the classroom, home and in our community. 
It is a privilege to work with such an amazing school community and I look forward to another year of excellence.  Together we “light the way” for the future of our students.
