Aloha and welcome to Palolo Elementary School, Home of the Proud Pugs!
We are pleased that you have taken the time to visit our new website. We hope that you will find it user-friendly, and that you will visit often to receive the most up-to-date information and news.
Palolo Elementary School is a special place nestled in beautiful Palolo Valley. It is a lively place of learning where students are creative risk takers who apply their knowledge to solve real life problems. It is an exciting place where the pathways to learning are intentionally designed and purposeful. It is a place with pride that celebrates diversity and encourages the collective ideas and efforts of all, as we understand that voice and collaboration produce powerful outcomes. It is a place with a belief that failure is not an option as we develop resilience and perseverance to guide our students when they face adversity. Finally, it is a place with heart that honors not only what we learn and receive, but more importantly, what we teach and give to others.
In making Palolo Elementary School this special place, we are committed to serving our students by addressing their challenges as well as uncovering the unique gifts and talents of each child; integrating concepts and skills across all content areas (as the “real world” is holistic and not fragmented); and, creating an environment that encourages curiosity, problem-solving, and innovation.
Our instructional, curricular, and co-curricular programs are designed, always, with the best interest of our keiki in mind.
