Ka Ua Paliloa

Ka Ua Paliloa is the parent-teacher partnership of two unique school programs.  We serve keiki and ʻohana from Preschool – 8th grade and plan to add a grade each new school year up until 12th grade.

Pūnana Leo follows the ʻAha Pūnana Leo preschool curriculum, ‘Alo Kēhau follows Nāwahī rigorous curriculum, both founded in the Hawaiian Indigenous Educational Philosophy of the Kumu Honua Mauli Ola.

Parents and staff are working on a short-term and 10 year plan to ensure we reach our goal of having a Pre-K – 12 Hawaiian Language Medium Program here in Waimea that will be in existence for many generations to come.

We are the ONLY Hawaiian Language Medium School in Kohala.
