About Kamehameha Schools

At Kamehameha Schools, the mission to educate Native Hawaiian children was established by founder Ke Ali'i Pauahi. The mission is central to all daily functions and the drive behind the Schools' work. The Strategic Plan outlines the path forward and emphasizes that the same values instilled in students are the values teachers should live and teach by. Thus, students as well as teachers, administrators, and staff are held to a common set of learner outcomes (E Ola! elements highlighted below) and beliefs that will lead us to fulfilling Pauahi's mission.

Through this commitment is the belief that all Kamehameha Schools Employees and Students will become local and global servant leaders who are culturally engaged and play significant roles in creating strong 'ohana (family) and communities throughout ka pae 'aina o Hawai'i (the islands of Hawai'i) and beyond.
