West Hawaii Schools

School information

If you are moving to the Big Island – in particular West Hawaii (or currently live here), there is a good chance you will be researching West Hawaii school options for your kids. It is often the case that potential buyers looking for a home on the Big Island will prioritize education options within their home search criteria. You would be wise to do the same.

 

In part due to the vastness of West Hawaii, stretching over 50-miles from Captain Cook to Waimea, finding both convenient and the desired schooling for your children can be a challenge. If schools will play a part in your home-buying equation, be sure to thoroughly research neighborhoods and local West Hawaii school districts beforehand. For information about Hawaii Public Schools, visit the Hawaii Department of Education.

 

Below, you will find a general directory consisting of most West Hawaii schools along the Kona Coast and in Waimea. This includes public, private, and charter schools. Use it as a starting point for your research. When you are ready to begin looking at homes, Contact Penn to help with your search.

My wife is an elementary school educator here in Kona. And as parents with two young children of our own, we can certainly empathize with others in similar positions navigating through the school options.
