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!!
