Grades 6-8

Your child’s passions are our priority.

The preparation for high school, college and career begins in middle school at Maryknoll.

Our faculty and staff help each student hone his or her talents. Rigorous academics in math, science, English and history challenge students to become critical thinkers and problem solvers.

Courses in design, modeling, automation and robotics inspire students to apply theories to the real world. Class trips to Hawaii Island (6th grade), Hong Kong and Taiwan (7th grade), and Washington, D.C. (8th grade) bring social studies lessons to life. Progressive electives in band, choir, art and drama enable students to go deep in the creative arts. All students study Mandarin language.

Athletics through the Christian School Athletic League (CSAL) for grade 6 and the Interscholastic League of Honolulu (ILH) for grades 7-8 give scholar-athletes the chance to compete in two dozen sports.

Our Spartans complete eighth grade ready to transition to a high school Mx Scholar Program of their choice.
