From the moment I discovered Island School, I knew I wanted to be a part of “Educating the mind, inspiring the heart. Preparing Kauai’s youth to lead lives of significance.” Becoming a Voyager resonates deeply with my educational philosophy, in which we are all on a journey of engagement, inquiry, action, and reflection. Such meaningful learning happens in a community that includes real-world connections, meaningful relationships, sustainable structures, and opportunities for joy. This is in action at Island School, where we work as a cohesive team as we chart our course and navigate our growth into unique individuals who make up a strong Island School ‘ohana (family).
Our school’s focus on nurturing awareness, civic responsibility and connection, creativity, and curiosity are allowing us to grow stronger through the challenges of a pandemic and time of unrest and movement. We have ample opportunities to find our greatest strengths and reaffirm our sense of community and commitment to action - together.
At Island School, we aim to provide a vibrant and rigorous academic and co-curricular program serving local families. Our focus in the following areas offers preparation for a positive impact on our changing world:
- Personal Excellence - ‘Imi Ola
- Deeper Learning - ‘Ike Loa
- Dignity and Respect - Ho’ohanohano
- Meaningful Connections - ‘Ohana
- Perseverance - Ho’omau
- Purposeful Life - Ho’ohana
I invite you to explore our school and see what it means to be a Voyager!
