Welcome to the Grade School!
Walk through our schoolyard and you will find an atmosphere that encourages understanding and communication. Children chatter happily around a game of tether ball. A few steps away, two children sit engrossed as a classmate describes a recent field trip to the Hawaii Nature Center.
At Maryknoll School, the educational experience provides the academic, spiritual, and social grounding for our students. At each level, children are exposed to a wide range of disciplines: Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, Religion, Social Studies, Music, Physical Education, Art and Mandarin.
Kindergarten – 2nd Grade: The Grade School begins with our Early Childhood Program, where children develop and learn through spontaneous, self-directed activities and learning centers, along with the introduction of a more structured environment. Our goal is to cultivate a natural desire to learn.
Elementary School: Children continue on into the Elementary Program (Grades 3, 4 and 5) excited about learning and ready for these formative years. It is a time when the foundations of learning are laid, and at the same time, allows them to explore the world.
Middle School: As these children become young adolescents, our Middle School Program (Grades 6, 7 and 8), recognizes the rapid and extensive changes in all areas of development (physical, intellectual, psychological, social and moral). We also recognize that successful schooling at this level is largely dependent upon how sensitive and responsive schools are at this age group.
