School Notes

  • When your child applies for admission to Navy Hale Keiki School, you connect to a very special community. NHKS is a place where patriotism, values, collaboration and creativity, physical education and arts, and hands-on-classroom instruction are the building blocks for the future of your child`s mind, body, and spirit. We want every child to feel the love and embrace of an educational community dedicated to military dependents and local children in the community we live and play. Each day we begin instruction as a group through recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance and cheerful chorus of the National Anthem. Our children progress through a collaborative educational program. Teachers, Preschool through Fifth Grade, work together to create a seamless program incorporating math, science, spelling, and language to coincide with everyday curriculum and advancement through each grade. We realize a private education at Navy Hale Keiki School is an investment (not just of money but also of time, energy, and caring). Through the generosity of grants and our own parents, we do everything we can to help make a NHKS education accessible and affordable. Beginning in 2010, students can apply and receive need-based financial aid after the application process.
