Founded in 1847, Pauoa School is one of the state’s oldest schools. It is considered a hidden gem, just minutes from downtown. With 317 students, Pauoa is a small school where students get a lot of personal attention. Its students perform well on statewide tests, giving the school the top academic rank of “in good standing, unconditional.” And they enjoy a well rounded education, with full-time music and technology teachers, plus a part-time PE teacher. The robotics club has gone to the state championship two years running, and won awards for its “research quality” and “core values.”
The staff is highly committed to and involved in the school’s improvement initiatives. This is evident in the academic achievement of the students as measured by the Hawaii State Assessment.
It takes many people to provide children with the best learning environment, and at Pauoa this is indeed true. The faculty and staff provide exemplary services and support. In addition, the school benefits from the involvement of parents, volunteers and community members.
