In the Elementary School, students have self-contained classrooms, meaning that students are learning from the same teacher throughout most of their day. There are subject area specialists who teach art, drama, computer technology, Hawaiian Studies, music, and physical education. Students advancing more quickly in particular subjects may take classes with older students, and those in need of additional help may receive it.
The school year is divided into two semester, allowing for holiday breaks. Each semester, two per year, lasts 16 weeks.
