Welcome to Kona Pacific Public Charter School!

We are part of a proud tradition of international Waldorf education that is now 101 years young! At Kona Pacific we have the privilege of educating children and young adults according to deeply insightful principles of child development. Our innovative program integrates the academics and the arts; cultivates social-emotional, character-building and mindfulness practices with effective communication and life skills; and provides hands-on experiences in gardening and movement. Other unique aspects of our program include:

  • Indoor and outdoor kindergartens that protect children from too early academic instruction, safeguarding childhood and building capacities for developmental readiness for formal academic instruction beginning in first grade. This holistic approach nurtures the well-being of the young child in their first school experience.

  • Class teachers move with their students multiple years through the journey of the grades beginning in first grade.

  • All students are greeted individually each day with warmth and respect by their caring, competent, and creative teachers.

  • Small-group instruction is supported by educational assistants in the grades.

We are excited for you to explore the many windows into this unique educational experience accessible through our website! We warmly invite you to visit our beautiful campus to experience for yourself the miracle of learning taking place at Kona Pacific!
