Mokulele Elementary School Ratings & Reviews

August 08, 2015 Submitted by a parent
My 3 children have attended Mokulele for the past 3 years and we have been very happy with our experience here. We have found it to be small and safe.Several teachers are stand-outs in commitment and professionalism: Mrs. Furukawa, Ms. Luckie, Mrs. Levinson, and Mrs. Kajiyama are 1st-rate teachers. All grades have parent orientations to keep you in-the-know.There are several ways this school stands out from others in the area:There is a music program! All grades get to attend once a week classes with Mrs. Okinishi. As a bonus: 3rd gr learns recorder & 4th gr learns ukulele. After school, she offers extra classes in many types of instruments. My children are learning guitar and percussion.There is also an after-school art program. The 2nd grade brings in a professional artist during the year to teach workshops.My older boys have especially loved being members of TROOPS (recess monitors) and JPO (Jr. Police officers) where they learn drills, discipline, and peer mediating.The many field trips have been fun and educational: Hawaii Youth Symphony, Theatre, Aquarium, and Kaneohe Fish Pond were some favorites.The negative reviews from others regarding curriculum are not valid because, as of last year, Common Core was implemented in all public schools across the nation. Now the curriculum is THE SAME, NO MATTER WHERE YOU GO! Like it or not (I actually don't like it), that's the way it is everywhere.I feel that, where possible, it's important for parents to be involved in their children's school, as it helps them excel to their best ability. Mokulele has provided that opportunity for us.

The teachers and principal do not know how to communicate. It has been a long hard for to get them to do anything for my son who has special needs. They do not know how to follow an IEP. They give the impression that since this is a military school the kids are only there for a sorry time do why bother try to teach them any thing. Worst school ever

My son loves this school. It is within walking distance of our home and it really supports the base community. The school welcomes volunteers and has a great appreciation for the many parents available to help. The PTO runs many fun family activities throughout the year. I have never run into any problems with the staff and have seen teachers up working late into the evenings either in school sponsored events or up in their classrooms.

My son's experience at Mokulele was awful. He lasted there less than 1 semester before we decided homeschool was a far better option. The classroom was chaotic, the teacher had no control, and the principal did nothing to resolved any of the issues we had. My son had zero academic challenge there and seldom knew what homework to do because it was never made clear. I wished it had been run by DoDS schools.

I took out my kids and home school them now. The curriculum is well below the schools we came from, by about 2 grade levels. The teacher my daughter had was teaching improper English as correct... very frustrating and now I am having to back track and correct it. When my daughter got in trouble for reading after she finished her work she was held in during outside time. She was not allowed to work on homework during school even when her classwork was completed. There is a limited play area at the school and little playground equipment, which is frequently taken away as punishment. There are no after school programs to speak of unless you count daycare.
