It is an honor to serve as the Principal of Aloha Health Medical Academy and I am excited to share how our school shines !
Aloha was awarded a federal magnet program grant during the 2010-2011 school year and has a health and medical theme. Thematic units were created that revolve around health and medicine, upgrades to the school facility were made, and hands on opportunity for students increased! The school has a science lab with a credentialed teacher who provides science and health lessons to all students. Additionally, classrooms are equipped with iPad carts in grades K-3 and Chromebook carts in Grade 4-6 to further student exploration and learning. The goal is to increase student academic achievement and expose students to the health and medical industry.
Our staff is dedicated to the academic success of each of our students. Each student has access to a standards-based curriculum in English language arts, mathematics, science and social science. We also know that each child is unique and we celebrate the diversity of our school and community. We welcome parent involvement as an important element of student achievement and a safe and orderly school environment and high expectations for behavior and achievement is a goal we strive to maintain. School wide implementation of our site Positive Behavioral Intervention and Supports (PBIS) initiative promotes a caring community where students are safe to learn and grow. The entire staff is dedicated to providing a classroom environment that promotes and reinforces a safe and orderly campus so that each student can attain his or her potential. The Aloha staff knows that good teaching is a very important factor influencing student achievement and we are very proud to be a part of a learning community with an on-going tradition of academic excellence. All students have the opportunity to develop their ability to think critically, solve problems, communicate effectively, work independently and collaboratively, take risks, make decisions, be creative and help others. With students as our priority, the staff will continuously reflect on our teaching practices, share ideas and concerns honestly, communicate regularly with parents and community, and model a lifelong joy of learning through our own personal and professional growth.
We are a school community where the highest expectations are maintained. Aloha utilizes all available resources to enable students to become lifelong learners who possess the ability to achieve their utmost potential. We promote a safe, nurturing, and stimulating environment that invites students to actively participate in educational opportunities. We also provide a welcoming atmosphere in which parents and community members are encouraged to become immersed in students' educational endeavors and we work collaboratively to meet the individual academic and social needs of staff and students, creating a desirable environment where all participants are successful.
I look forward to working with you to ensure your student's success at Aloha Academy!
