Noho Papa

Noho Papa is a place-based, educational program established by the Edith Kanakaʻole Foundation. We believe in a holistic approach to education: “In a learning community that is steadfastly rooted in its culture, everyone has something to learn and something to teach. Students, parents, and community are partners in the educational process and achievements of all.”

Our Goals

  • Nuture the total development of our students.
  • Form relationships between environment, culture, technology, and student.
  • Utilize natural environment, cultural practitioners and the expertise and knowledge of our elders to provide meaningful and successful learning for our children and their families.
