DreamHouse ʻEwa Beach welcomed its inaugural class of students on August 5, 2019. One-hundred sixth graders were excited to start the new school year at their new charter school located at the Laulani Village Shopping Center in ʻEwa Beach.
Parent Matt Householder is thankful their daughter was accepted into DreamHouse, "We are excited about a new opportunity for her to learn in a different environment where they focus on her and her needs and the way she learns." Pualani Moefu has two daughters attending DreamHouse, she said she appreciates the emphasis the school places on leadership skills and is thankful for the new charter school, "Being able to provide a great education in ʻEwa Beach while many of the schools in the area are overcrowded and just having them have the opportunity for a good education in a great location."
DreamHouse Chief Education Officer Alex Teece said the waitlist to get into the school continues to grow. He feels parents are drawn to the school's focus on leadership development, "We are creating a program that not only puts them in a place where they can learn Math and ELA and Social Studies concepts but where they are also developing as leaders who are thinking about how they can positively affect the community around them."
Each year DreamHouse will add another class of one-hundred 6th grade students until they are a 6-12 grade school with a capacity to serve 700 students. In the summer of 2020, the school will move to its new home in Kalaeloa.
