“The encouragement for families to be involved with our opioʻs education is outstanding! And more importantly, the commitment of the kumu to the opio is something Iʻve not experienced in any school. I am so grateful for the dedicated staff from the poʻo kumu to the kumu. This is truly what innovation looks and feels like!! Mahalo pihaʻu!!”
