What We Teach

  • Students learn dances from different Polynesian cultures - Hawaiian, Tahitian, Samoan and Maori.
  • We have ukulele classes and we also teach songs and hymns in native languages.
  • Our school also includes 'olelo (language) - ranging from useful everyday Hawaiian phrases to hula motions.
  • Students also learn about the history of the Polynesian islands ranging from geography to royalty.
  • And above all, Hawaiian values and traditions are taught to perpetuate "aloha" throughout our communities.
