Maunawili Elementary is located on the Windward side of the island of Oahu in the state of Hawaii and is blessed with a setting of natural beauty and tranquility. If you are standing on the school's playfield, it has a sweeping view of Mt. Olomana and the Koolaus. On rainy days, the children at the school marvel at the numerous waterfalls cascading down the Koolau Mountain chain. During sunrises, a light morning mist might occur and Mt. Olomana will often glow with a pinkish hue. Rainbows are abundant over the campus.
Maunawili School serves children from Preschool through Grade 6 and has a diverse student population of approximately 400 from the surrounding communities of Olomana, Pohakapu, Maunawili, and Kukunono. At present, a larger number of students are of Hawaiian, part-Hawaiian, Caucasian, or Japanese ancestry. However, the student population still contains a mixture of diverse ethnicity. Our students demonstrate behaviors that indicate they genuinely enjoy coming to Maunawili School. The school is a setting in which they feel safe and accepted.
