Koko Head School represented Hawaii in the National Blue Ribbon Schools Program as a high performing school.

We are one of three schools from the State of Hawaii to receive this distinction in 2011. Schools who receive this distinction need to wait five years before being eligible to be nominated again. We credit the entire Koko Head Elementary School Ohana, past and present, for this honor.

Our school is part of the Kaiser Complex of the Honolulu District in the State of Hawaii Department of Education.

All the Kaiser Complex schools are committed to providing a World Class Education for our community.

The Kaiser Complex includes:
Koko Head Elementary, Aina Haina Elementary, Hahaione Elementary, Kamiloiki Elementary, Niu Valley Middle School & Henry J. Kaiser High School

A special mahalo to the Kaiser High School Computer Science club for providing an informative, hands-on coding workshop to our students and parents during Spring Break.  Led by Computer Science Club President Jaron Schreiber, our students coded using kid-friendly and engaging websites, saw a demo of animation software, and even tested virtual reality goggles.  We would like to thank President Schreiber and his team along with their advisor, Mrs. Elizabeth Ben for collaborating with us to make this workshop possible.

We would like to thank Mr. Kikuta from the HPD and a long time volunteer at Koko Head School for reading to our students during morning recess as we celebrated Dr. Seuss’s birthday!

We are still in need of volunteers for various activities associated with our Keiki Karnival (not open to the general public) on Friday, March 17, 2017.  Please consider registering here using this link.  Thank you.
