We are so pleased with Hale Kula Elementary school. The administration contacts the parents regularly as does the teacher. Our daughter loves going to school and has learned a great deal her first year. As a kindergartner halfway through the year, she is reading and doing basic addition. Her teacher is fantastic and always available. Talking with other parents that have children in other grades, they have also told me how much they like the teachers their children have.
This school is awesome. My kindergartener has learned so much withing the last six months --reading, addition, subtraction...The teachers are awesome, they love parents-students interaction.
Do not send your child to this school. Teachers are untrained, administration is apathetic, and especially incompetent when dealing with learning disabilities.

Are the Three Rs Robbing our Children?
For far too long the American public school system has failed to address “out-of-school” factors like poverty and their impact on what happens in the classroom. As the nation continues to become increasingly diverse, many schools are adopting comprehensive approaches to education that account for the unique needs of students so that each child is prepared for their future and not just for a year-end test.
