Philosophy of Lahainaluna High School:
Lahainaluna is a part of a society that is experiencing rapid change. Our school must provide students with the tools to cope that change. Our educational programs strive to be flexible and innovative, while retaining those programs which have proven effective in meeting our students' needs.
We recognize the importance of each student. All students can learn, and we must give them the opportunity to maximize their potential. We encourage students to think independently, to have a sense of responsibility for themselves and for society, and to experience the satisfactions and rewards that come from creativity.
The ultimate goal of our school is to instill a sense of dignity and self-worth in each student. We strive to develop in each student knowledge and appreciation of democratic principles. Everyone deserves equal opportunity, and we seek to protect students' rights.
We believe in excellence and equity in education.
We believe students can learn in different ways and should be provided with a variety of instructional approaches to support their learning.
We believe that the commitment to continuous improvement is imperative, to enable students to become confident, self directed lifelong learners.
We believe standards with clear goals and high expectations for student achievement should guide curriculum strategies.
We believe education is a system made up of all components of our community interacting as one.
