Principal's Welcome:

Welcome to Waimea Middle Public Conversion Charter School. We are a collaborative learning community which celebrates all of our young scholars. Our expert teachers provide engaging learning opportunities for students using research-based instructional strategies.

We are committed to empowering students with the skills, values and cultural understanding to navigate high school and beyond. We instill the IKAIR core values of ‘Ike, Kaizen, Accountability, Integrity and Respect in all grade levels. We are excited about showcasing student work inside and outside of our classrooms and during ho’ike nights.

We are an inclusive school. We celebrate the uniqueness of each child as we join together to learn. Waimea Middle proudly serves students’ diverse interests and backgrounds. To meet the diverse interests of our students, we have secured several after-school grants to bring back athletics, homework help and robotics.

We hope that you see that Waimea Middle is a learning community committed to the success of your child as they acquire and apply the academic, social, emotional and cultural skills needed in today’s global environment. We invite you to learn about our school by exploring this website, scheduling a school tour, or attending a school event.

We also look forward to welcoming you to campus. Please call or email!

Sincerely,

Janice English

  • Indoor and outdoor masking is optional for students and employees, but highly encouraged. The Department recognizes the benefits of masking for reducing the spread of COVID-19 and other respiratory illnesses and any student or employee who chooses to wear a mask will have that decision respected.

  • In the event of a cluster or outbreak, masks may temporarily be required indoors.

  • Indoor masking is strongly encouraged when the CDC determines community levels are medium or high. CDC community levels are updated weekly on Thursdays on their website.
