Educational Philosophy

Education is a social process. Education is growth. Education is not a preparation for life; education is life itself.

~ John Dewey

Our simple educational philosphy: we learn as we live and we celebrate what we learn!

About Kaui

Kauai is the oldest of the Hawaiian Islands. was first settled around 5 or 6AD. Several centuries later Captain Cook landed on Kauai near Waimea. Initially, islanders believed Cook was sent from the gods but eventually they changed their minds. Much of the island was covered by sugar plantations but they are no longer profitable and only one large plantation remains. There is one coffee plantation that is still in operation and some taro fields as well. The primary industry now though is tourism. There are lots of local food favorites including shave ice, papaya, macademia nut ice cream, apple bananas, and pineapple. We have tried them all.
