Welcome Military Families!

Ho`ala School is located adjacent to Schofield Barracks & Wheeler AAFB on the Island of Oahu. Our school has 40% military students and welcomes new military families' students at any time during the year.  Ho`ala serves military families in various installations including, Schofield, Wheeler, Helemano, Pearl Harbor, Hickam and Camp Smith.  Military families choose to send their children to Ho`ala School for a variety of reasons. Ho`ala School has smaller class sizes and lower teacher to student ratio at an average of 1:11.  Our faculty is engaging and inspiring, and supports each child in a nurturing, rich, and experiential academic environment.  Because of our small slass sizes we are able to offer an individualized curriculum as well as AP & Honors programs.  100% of our graduates go on to colleges of their choice. The structure of our programs are conducive to students entering Ho`ala at various times in the year and experiencing success and academic progress. Our welcoming community integrates new students as if they were family moving home.

 Below are testimonials from a few of our military parents and a new 4th grade military student:

    Mia's first progress report at her new school! Middle School!!!  Way to go Mia! We are so proud of you! Mia went to Ho`ala School from K-4th and Hoala has exceeded our expectations not only academically but socially as well! Their program of character development truly enriches the WHOLE child! Ho`ala's investment in each child's development and well being has allowed Mia to soar at her new school! Thank you Ho`ala! Mia was definitely prepared and ahead of the curve for the middle school transition to include a HUGE military PCS to OK due to Ho`ala's emphasis on respect, responsibility, responsiveness and resourcefulness We miss you everyday- you will always be in our hearts Ho`ala! Special shout out to Carolyn Brown, Dara Hanegraaf and Lori Fukuoka- your hard work and dedication truly shows in Mia!!! Keep up the great work- we love you all! Hoala children thrive!!!!  Linea Baker

    My son has grown so much as a student at Ho`ala.  You all have done more to heal his self-esteem and confidence than I was able to do while homeschooling him.  We are so grateful.  He has become responsible & his anxiety about doing academic work, including homework, has disappeared.  This change is a credit to Lori, the other teachers (who converse with him, even though he is not their pupil) and to the administration .  There is something really special going on at Ho`ala.  It is so different from all their previous schools, and thank heavens!  It feels like love – not the sentimental version; rather, the version that sees and believes in the best of each child & gives them the tools to realize it for themselves.  Thank you!  Allison Evans.


     I love my new school!  I have lots of friends.  I'm learning lots of new things and I love having two recesses!  I've got new teachers I love. I've never been to a school this great!   (New 4th grade military student.)
