Hanalani has a highly successful robotics program that contributed to two International Championship and 4 Regional Championship Botball teams. Here a student builds a robot from the multitude of parts and tools at his disposal.

Hanalani Schools is located on a beautiful 6 acre campus conveniently located in Central Oahu. Facilities include a large gymnasium, large stage with state of the art lighting, large music and band rooms, art facilities and classrooms with SMART board technology.
Science Technology Engineering & Math (STEM) are critical elements of the 21st century education and a priority at Hanalani Schools. Students experience many hands-on activities that emphasize STEM.
Hanalani Schools goes beyond the classroom and prepares the students to be productive citizens in the real world. Students are provided a multitude of community service opportunities during their tenure at Hanalani. Here a student participates in 'Make a Difference Day' where they go out into the local community and cover up graffiti and conduct community beautification projects.
At Hanalani Schools, patriotism is important. Pledges are said daily and our appreciation is show to our military service members through our waiver of the application fee.
The Hanalani Royals athletics program is a competitive program.  With participation in the ILH & Pac5 there are competitive athletics programs for students elementary through upper school.
This young lady is conducting an assignment for the digital story-telling class.  Hanalani embraces 21st century technology. Whether it's through videography, photography or robotics, we don't shy away from today's technology. Hanalani Schools even has a 'bring your own device' (BYOD) program where students bring a laptop and have digital textbooks in some classes.
We believe that some activities shouldn't be 'extra-curricular' but should be a part in the development of the overall student. Therefore we refer to these programs as 'co-curricular'. From music, orchestra, band, private lessons, public performances and more, there are plenty of opportunities for Hanalani students to pursue their passions beyond the classroom.
Hanalani has state of the art facilities.  The stage lighting, curtain and audio systems are just one example of that. From Annie to the Wizard of Oz, we put on some great drama productions.

My daughter has been attending Hanalani Schools since she was 3 years old. She is now in the 3rd grade. Hanalani Schools is one of the most affordable private schools on this island that offer Pre - K through High School. I couldn't be happier with the choice I made to send her there. Being a single mother, I have to admit, it has not been easy making ends meet. I am very blessed to have received financial assistance through Hanalani Schools Tuition Assistance Program (TAP). It does not fully cover my daughter's tuition, but it sure does help! I have made many sacrifices in order for my daughter to receive an excellent education and I have to tell you, Hanalani Schools is well worth the sacrifice. If you haven't had a chance, stop by and take a tour!!
