WELCOME to our school website

As principal of Pū‘ōhala Elementary School since 2003, I am pleased and privileged to serve as the administrator of this fine school. Pū‘ōhala has a long history of academic excellence and strong community values. The teachers are amongst the finest in the district, and we have boasted two Teacher of the Year State finalists. The staff members are nurturing anAlexis Kane, Puoahla Elementary Principald supportive to all students as we strive to live our vision statement:

Pū‘ōhala Elementary School will be a place where all students experience success in a positive, safe and challenging learning environment.

Pū‘ōhala is a unique learning community where English and Hawaiian Immersion programs thrive side-by-side in an atmosphere of challenging curriculum and engaging teaching strategies. The small population allows the staff to know and care about each and every child that attends school on this campus.
