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.

Do not send your child to this school. Teachers are untrained, administration is apathetic, and especially incompetent when dealing with learning disabilities.
