Ewa Beach & Kapolei Private & Public Schools: Elementary, Middle & High Schools

Share Button

You’ve heard all the talk about the new neighborhoods, the bottomless options of the 2nd City’s shopping and recreation and the convenience of the Rail system that begins here. But what about your kid’s education?

The schools of Kapolei and Ewa Beach fall right in line with the historical track of the area. You’ll find institutions that date to the late 19th Century, created to serve the families of the plantation workers. Yet there’s also the opposite extreme, with one school that opened just this summer (2017), as the growing population created the need for more classrooms and more educational options.

Unlike the strictly working-class past, the modern Kapolei and Ewa Beach are home to every economic level, resulting in public schools that continue to expand to meet demand, as well as private schools that are starting to rival prominent names in Honolulu. You’ll find them all below, with the essential information you need to know about what’s there for your child. You may be very surprised at what you find. Date compiled August / September 2017.
