Welcome to the Grade School!

Walk through our schoolyard and you will find an atmosphere that encourages understanding and communication. Children chatter happily on campus, while a few steps away two classmates discuss a recent field trip to the Hawaii Nature Center.

At Maryknoll School, the educational experience provides academic, spiritual, and social grounding for our students. At each level, children are exposed to a wide range of disciplines, including 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, along with the introduction of a more structured environment. Our goal is to cultivate a natural desire to learn.

Elementary School

In the Elementary Program (Grades 3, 4 and 5) the foundations of learning are laid, allowing students to cultivate their curiosities and explore their internal and external worlds.

Middle School

Our Middle School Program (Grades 6, 7 and 8), recognizes and encourages the rapid and extensive changes in all areas of an adolescent’s development (physical, intellectual, psychological, social and moral) through a diversity of curricular and extracurricular programs. We understand that successful schooling at this level is largely dependent on sensitivity and responsiveness,, and we shape our educational programs around this idea.
