More About Kona Pacific:
Our school serves a diverse population that might not otherwise have access to a Waldorf educational program. Approximately 70% of our students are eligible for free/reduced cost meals, and 15% come from families where English is not the primary language. Each student at Kona Pacific is inspired to a high level of academic excellence, enthusiasm for learning, a healthy self-awareness, interest and concern for others, and respect for the natural world.
Kona Pacific is located in Kealakekua, West Hawai'i, ten miles south of Kailua-Kona. Our campus is situated on a 40 acre property with beautiful forest areas featuring many native trees and plants, sacred Hawaiian sites, and a biodynamic farm (currently fallow).
Our team includes our Director, 14 Waldorf-trained educators, a Director of Student Services, and a full complement of office and support staff. The school is moving out of its pioneering phase and is developing organizational infrastructure, with maturing committee structure, and a growing library of best practices, policies, and procedures.
