Principal's Message


It is our mission to help every child feel welcomed, connected, and part of our Ali‘iolani family. Additionally, we strive to challenge each student to grow in his or her academic abilities and to be ready for middle school and high school. At Ali‘iolani, we have great teachers who spend hours planning and creating classroom activities to engage our students in learning. Our teachers utilize research based best practices and analyze academic data to determine current skill levels and to set goals for growth and improvement for all students.

I am honored to serve as the Principal of Ali‘iolani Elementary School. It is a privilege to be a part of a community where parents, teachers and students care for each other and strive to build positive relationships that support academic and social growth.
