Welcome to the Ala Wai Elementary School website. We are a K-5 public elementary school located in Honolulu, between famous Waikiki Beach and the University of Hawaii. At Ala Wai School you will find a welcoming atmosphere of individuals who believe in doing what is “right” and in the best interest of our children.
At Ala Wai School many community partners, volunteers and parents actively work together to support our mission of utilizing all available resources to help all students achieve high standards. Volunteers can be seen engaged in mentoring, tutoring, campus beautification, vision and hearing screening, book donations, fundraising, nutrition lessons and other wellness activities on a daily basis.
Our School Community Council (SCC) and Parent, Teacher, Student Association (PTSA) offer leadership and support in strengthening Ala Wai School’s programs and promoting student success. We are grateful for the many community partnerships that support our school and encourage our families to take an active role in their child's education. Our faculty and staff are very committed in preparing our students to be college and career ready and meeting our vision of “Believe. Achieve. Succeed. Dream Big and Make It Happen!”
