The Elementary School begins with pre-kindergarten and runs through fifth grade. In the Elementary School students have self-contained classrooms. This means that students have the same teacher most of the time. However, students who are more advanced may take classes with older students, and those having difficulty with particular subjects may be assigned tutors or otherwise receive additional help. Also, there are subject area specialists who teach art, drama, computer technology, Hawaiian Studies, music, and physical education.
The school year is divided into three main sections, called “trimesters .” Each trimester lasts 12 weeks. Trimesters allow a better fit between school holidays and the school year.
See the Island School Curriculum Guide and Student/Parent Handbook for detailed descriptions of course offerings, policies and programs for grades pre-kindergarten through 5.
