James Teal: My son went to Ala Wai School from K - 5 and I was very satisfied with the kind of education and services they provided him. The administrator, teachers and staff are very dedicated, welcoming, accomodating and truly practice the spirit of ALOHA!!! The school made sure that parents/guardians are always informed on anything and everything that concerns your child's education. The school provides a safe and nurturing environment. It's no wonder that they got the National Blue Ribbon School Award!!!! I would recommend this school to all parents.
