Mahalo and the superb staff who assisted our students during today’s field trip. We showed our aloha to the ʻāina by removing invasive species that were creating a threat to some of the desired foliage within the valley.

Students talked about ahupuaʻa and its 3 parts: uka, kula, and kai as they learned about the stream that runs through the valley to the ocean.

Ho`ala School - Where Children Flourish

Ho`āla Education is a philosophy that uses a coherent system of practices to develop citizens of personal integrity who act effectively for the greater good. Ho`āla Education is based on the work of Alfred Adler as articulated by Rudolf Dreikurs and others. Adler held that human behavior is purposive or future oriented, although unconsciously so. Adler identifies two basic motivations and says that each of us is searching for two things:
--a strong sense (or experience) of significance, and
--a strong sense (or experience) of belonging

How we achieve this purpose:

School and home partner to create environments where children develop habits of responsibility, respect, resourcefulness, and responsiveness through example and experience, and as a result, flourish as successful, healthy, and contributing human beings.
