We are now a certified Blue Zones school!
Under Hawaii’s Strive HI Performance System, Pōmaika‘i Elementary is once again a top 5% Recognition School -- we are proud to be ranked #1 of elementary schools on Maui again. We have a high number (68%) of students meeting proficiency on the HSA Science test (4th grade); and above 70% on the SBA tests, (3rd, 4th, and 5th grade). We also had a low number of student absences (excused or not) at 11%, which roughly translates to 55 students being out 15 or more days of school. Being a Recognition School is a testament to our focus on our vision, mission, and commitment to our children’s successes. We will continue to improve as we include more “hands on” and collaborative learning opportunities that utilize critical thinking skills and active learning strategies in all of our classes.
This year the competition was held on Saturday, March 9, 2019 at the Maui High School cafeteria. Representing Pomaika'i were students: Kaiden, Aleizay Rose, Jeter, Caden, Caylev, Kaizen, Jerome and Jaxson.
Kaiden and Jaxson were recognized as top scorers in their divisions.
Special thanks to our teacher coaches, Mrs. Sakuma and Mrs. Higa.
