About Us

Hana High and Elementary School was established by the Department of Education in 1912. Today, our School serves approximately 350 students from kindergarten through high school. Nearly 80 percent of the students are of Hawaiian or Part-Hawaiian ancestry reflecting the native culture that has been continuously maintained in Hana for centuries.
 
During the past one hundred years, Hana School has served a vital role in this remote Maui community. Besides being an educational institution, Hana School is a community gathering place where ideas are exchanged and lasting friendships are formed. Although our school is geographically isolated, students are provided with many opportunities to succeed.

Our Mission

Vocational and Academic Education will provide the opportunities for students to gain knowledge, skills, and values which will prepare them to succeed in all facets of life.

Ka'ike a ke kulanakauhale a pau he hei na ke keiki.

Our Values

Ho’ihi: Respectful, shows empathy, tolerance and humility
Pono: Honest, upright and humble. Genial to others

Calendar of Events

News & Announcements

It is our goal to provide useful and interesting information for the students, teachers, and parents of our community. It is absolutely essential that all community members, students and faculty are informed of upcoming events regarding the school including where and when the events will be held. Please check back with this website as we will be updating it weekly, Mahalo for your support.
According to our 2017-2018 school schedule, some Fridays are marked "Red" indicating no school for students and teacher work days. On these Red Fridays, 21st Century Community Learning Centers will be offering enrichment programs for students to participate in. Please review the flyer (by clicking on the headline above) to see which programs are available for your student's age group. Mahalo for your patience as we continue to establish more programs for Red Fridays.
