WASC Corner


Kapolei Elementary School completed the requirements for the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) self study report.

The commissioners of the ASC WASC conferred that Kapolei Elementary School met the criteria and requirements of the self-study in February 2019. Based on that decision, Kapolei Elementary School was granted a 6-year accreditation status.

Thank you to our administrators, faculty & staff, parents, students, and the community for your support of KES. We are very proud of our school!

What's WASC?


The Hawaii Department of Education (HIDOE) in collaboration with Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) began a five-year plan to accredit all public elementary schools here in the islands. This accreditation process focuses on student achievement and a culture of continuous improvement at the school site.
