Kualapu'u Receives Initial Accreditation

Kualapu’u School is the only school of the 16 schools currently undergoing the HAIS-WASC accreditation process to receive this distinction. Everyone at the school is to be congratulated for their hard work and dedication to school improvement. This high mark is clearly a reflection of their commitment to the school improvement process. Special thanks goes to Katina Soares who led the accreditation process for the school, and Lydia Trinidad for her continued, outstanding leadership of the school.
