About Honoka`a Elementary School
Nestled along the scenic Hamakua Coast is found the resilient and historic town of Honoka’a. Honoka’a has undergone many changes since the close of the Sugar Industry 20 years ago and is home to the mighty dragons of Honoka’a Elementary School.
The 16-17 school year projects 380 students. Honoka’a Elementary School has many programs to meet the unique needs of our students: Honoka’a Elementary uses Wonders as our foundation for reading. This year we will embark on the state-wide Stepping Stones math curriculum for grades K-5 and Go Math for grade 6. Individualized gifted and talented services are addressed through differentiation. An English Language Learners (ELL) program, Special Education and related services; the Primary School Adjustment Program (PSAP) to assist students in kindergarten through grade three during their transition to school; school-based behavioral heath services, school counseling program and student council. Wonders (K-6), Stepping Stones (K-5), Go Math (Grade 6). In addition to our core curriculum in reading and math, we also implement a three-tiered intervention program in both core subjects. The intervention program begins with the solid, standards-based core curriculum in reading and math. Students receive additional services in their areas of need using research-based intervention programs.
Our Parent Community Network Coordinator and School Community Council host a number of Family Night events throughout the year. The Family Nights focus on topics such as standards-based instruction; parenting skills; helping your child succeed at school; test-taking skills; and showcasing student work. We believe that all students can learn, and we strive to provide the highest quality public school education possible to our students, including the individual supports that may be necessary for each student to meet his/her academic potential.
