Welcome to the Island School Parent Association!
The Island School Parent Association welcomes you. The goal of this website is to support the endeavors of the PA (who support the endeavors of our students).
Our next meeting is March 7th at 8am, teacher workroom.
Some useful links from the Island School website:
Every year the PA puts on Fall Roundup. It’s a great night for all grades, and it’s a great way to kick off the year.
(The following is a direct paste from the Island School website, but it’s always helpful to remind ourselves where our kids go to school and how lucky we are.)
There are many good private day schools in the United States, but few are as unique and inviting as ours. The school is located on the slopes of Kilohana in sunny and beautiful Lihue, Hawaii. Our mission is to prepare our students to live productive, fulfilling lives as confident members of society; to express fully the talents of our faculty and administration through a challenging curriculum that prepares students for successful higher education; to provide a safe, nurturing environment that fosters creativity, critical thinking, initiative and respect for self and others.
Research indicates the reason children and parents choose a particular private school is based on several factors:
The College Preparatory Program – Our programs are designed for the college bound student that have an opportunity to take advanced level honor courses with the option to take the Advanced Placement Test at the end of the year. Our college placement process takes great pride in finding the right match for our graduates and spends quality time cultivating and researching successful matches. Our success in placing our students in top-quality colleges and universities is well documented.
Small Class Sizes – Our average class size in the high school is 14 students, middle school is 18 students and elementary school is 20 students. Our teachers are available for tutorial before, during and after school.
Greater Sense of Community – Our students are required to perform 20 hours of community service per year. These projects are numerous in the greater Kauai Island area and include working with Island School special events such as Farm Fair, Fall Round Up or Island School’s Birthday.
Character Development – Discipline, respect and integrity are fully integrated into an Island School education.
