Grades K-2

A love for learning starts young.

Maryknoll School is renowned for its excellent early education program in grades K-2, which lays a solid foundation in reading, writing, math and science.

Lessons in Phonics Plus build verbal skills and make reading fun to cultivate students’ enjoyment of storytelling and ease of communication. Science and math start with showing students the wonder of the world around them, and invite them to explore, question and discover. Spontaneous, self-directed activities combined with the introduction of a more structured learning environment teach students social skills and responsibility as they adjust to the grade school environment. All students study Mandarin starting in kindergarten.

For the 2017-2018 school year, students in kindergarten and 1st grade have the option of participating in our new Chinese Immersion Program, the first Mandarin language immersion program in Hawaii during the normal school day. Mandarin Immersion students will receive daily instruction in a 50/50 model, 50% of each day in Mandarin and 50% in English. Find out more about how your child could benefit from a Chinese immersion education.

Our caring faculty and staff get to know each and every student at Maryknoll, and help to nurture their unique interests, passions and talents as early as kindergarten.

We hope you will join us as part of the Maryknoll ohana!

Learning Criteria

At Maryknoll, we provide classroom experiences that follow five types of Learning Criteria to prepare students to be highly skilled and successful in school and beyond.

  1. Foundation Learning sets the knowledge and skill levels that all students are required to achieve at every grade level.
  2. Stretch Learning allows students to challenge themselves through interdisciplinary activities, honors courses, pursuing career interests and earning specialized certificates.
  3. Personal Skill Development focuses on social and emotional growth through leadership skills, collaboration, team building and service learning.
  4. Learner Engagement with teachers, peers and the school community provides students with intrinsic motivation and a sense of satisfaction, belonging and accomplishment.
  5. Student-Centered Learning enables students to have input in what and how they learn, often working in collaboration with other students to complete projects.
