Does not seem to be any accountability for what takes place in the classroom. Principal seems to be very passive and has no idea what is going on in his school. Positive note....excellent vice-principal who has a great rapport with parents.Definitely not the awesome school it used to be.

I would give this school a 4 1/2 star rating but the choices are 4 or 5. I chose Aina Haina as the area to live in when we moved here 11 months ago because it is a beautiful area, but one of the prerequisites was an elementary school with exceptional ratings. Aina Haina Elementary carries a 9/10 Great School rating and so we chose this school. We have LOVED it so far! Our daughter's kindergarten teacher is great with the kids; it is a class of 19 students. I love the parents of the other students I have met, and the parent involvement definitely makes a good school "great". I appreciate that as we walk through the school when I pick my daughter up, other faculty (librarian, teacher's assistants, PE teacher, etc) know her name...it is because they take the time to get to know each student and make them feel important. I have enjoyed everything from the after-school programs available, level and creativity of their projects/homework, and the organization of communication to the child's family (daily correspondence through a folder program, communication through an online classroom page on Shutterfly, etc). My daughter is thriving and I am so happy I have found this school.

We loved this school! Our son had two of the best teachers any of our children have ever had. This is a school with high parent involvement and high standards.

I wish my child had 19 students and a aid at Aina Haina. She has 27 with no aid. The teacher though nice simply cannot handle all of the students. After reading your review I am going to have to talk to other parents in my class to see about getting an aide and less students. Maybe the aid in the other parents class could come and help our teacher. She is drowning!!!

My childs class consists of 19 students this year. Last year, 2011, there were, at the most, 23 students in his class (with a teacher, and an aide). There are two parents helping out in the classroom each day, and throughout the day certain students report to other teachers for help (ESL, G/T, SPED, etc.). I guess some reviewers consider this a problematic class size. I don't. There are high expectations at this school. If you don't want your child to be challenged and pushed to their highest potential, you may need to find a more lax school. They build future competitors and leaders, and believe each child is one.
