Our commitment to student safety
The well-being of our students is at the core of our promise. We’re continuing to seek out opportunities to do more to help all of our keiki focus on learning and set a foundation for success.

Keeping the haumāna in our classrooms and community programs safe and secure continues to be an ever-present commitment by all of us at Kamehameha Schools. We’re dedicated to creating surroundings for our keiki that are crucial to their success in school and their overall well-being.

We believe students thrive in a school environment that nurtures and protects them while helping to develop good cognitive, physical and mental health as well as spirituality and cultural identity.
