The School

Wai‘alae Elementary Public Charter School

 On any given day, at any given time, parents and community volunteers can be observed around our school campus being involved in children learning by helping the school, teachers, or students. They may be tutoring students, coaching, doing clerical tasks, fundraising, chaperoning field trips, or organizing and participating in projects and activities. Parents get involved either individually or through organized groups such as Friends of Wai‘alae School (FWS), classroom learning hui, and governance boards and committees.


Very often, persons from the community with no “child connection” to Wai‘alae volunteer their time, energy, and expertise to the school. Their interest in supporting public education and helping children are greatly appreciated.
