School Notes:

At Punahou School, we are committed to providing an environment where students can develop moral and spiritual values consistent with the Christian principles on which Punahou was founded, affirming the worth and dignity of each individual; develop intellectual, academic and physical potential to the fullest degree, preparing them for college and for challenges facing them now and in the future; develop and enhance creativity and appreciation of the arts; and appreciate cultural diversity and develop social responsibility. Our vision for Punahou School is to promote an enlightened and challenging educational program for Punahou students through a cohesive and appropriately integrated K-12 curriculum that is continuously examined, renewed and communicated, in an effort to strengthen it; and to help Punahou students to develop to their fullest powers both as individuals and as members of a group; and to promote within them a sense of responsibility towards and interdependence with their schoolmates, their community, and their world.
