About Us

 Kalei’opu’u Elementary School (KES) was opened in 1989 in the Village Park/Royal Kunia area located in Waipahu. 
KES is part of the Waipahu Complex 
and includes grades Kindergarten through Grade 6 in addition to two pre-school classes for students with learning disabilities.

Our school and community have high expectations for students to meet and exceed the Common Core State Standards. We have adopted the state-approved curricula in both math and reading. We have pacing maps for both math and reading in grades K-6 to ensure all students have access to grade-level material and standards. Our teachers continue to provide intervention blocks for students who are below grade level in both math and reading. Intensive intervention pull-out services occur in the afternoon for targeted students. 

Learning at Kalei’opu’u includes web-based and closed-site technology to prepare our students for the technological world. We are continuing our efforts to integrate technology into various subject areas. The computer programs help to supplement our teaching.
