Welcome to Kāne‘ohe Elementary School

Founded in 1956, Kāne‘ohe Elementary enjoys a long tradition of providing our students with a well-rounded education, thus providing an impetus for learning. For example, we offer a variety of enrichment activities including Castle Speech Festival, Castle Performing Arts Program, VEX Robotics, fine arts, world languages, violin, chorus, hula, inter school athletics, Navy Partners Physical Education classes, student council and Junior Patrol Officer program.
On the heels of celebrating our school’s 60th anniversary, our staff enhanced this tradition by making a commitment to helping all students learn at high levels by any means necessary. This is manifested in our efforts to personalize learning via differentiating the curricula, providing small group instruction, and conducting individual assessments.
We also engage partners in realizing our commitment to students. Along with King Intermediate, Castle High School, the University of Hawaiʻi, the Castle Foundation and the Pacific American Foundation, we are developing an Engineering Pipeline. The aim of this pipeline is to inspire students to consider a career in the engineering field while learning to utilize the Engineering Design Process to rigorously solve everyday problems.
