School Community Councils
School Community Councils (SCC) enable shared decision-making among principals, teachers, parents, students, and community members to improve student achievement.
The SCC is a major part of the overall, decisionmaking structure at each school. It consists of a group of people who are elected by their peers to represent the members of the school community.
The primary role of the SCC is to review and evaluate the Standards Implementation Design (SID) Academic and Financial Plan and to ensure that the needs of all students are addressed.

Kaimuki High School provides a student-centered learning environment aimed at preparing students for college, career, and life through project based learning (PBL). PBL connects the learning to the outside world and allows the learner to know his or her own place in the knowledge advancement community.
In addition to PBL, two major features at KHS that support college, career, and life readiness are Academies and Early College.
The first feature is Academies. Academies are smaller learning communities where all students and teachers are grouped based on interest. Students within an academy see the same core (math, English, science, and social studies) teachers. Electives within the academy are based on the academy’s focus. KHS now has four academies that include Freshman Academy, Hospitality Academy (Culinary Arts, Hotel Operations, and Polynesian Music), Bulldog Academy (CBI and SMI students), and STEM-PAC Academy (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, Digital Media, and Theater Arts).
The second feature is Early College (EC). EC allows for high school students to earn college credits while still in high school. Our on-campus EC program, Kaimuki to College (K2C), provides all KHS students, particularly disadvantaged students, with equitable access to college courses. K2C students are provided the necessary supports to help ensure that they are successful in these EC courses. As KHS students mature, they have the option of taking EC courses off campus at Kapiolani Community College and the University of Hawaii at Manoa. KHS’s EC program boasts over 900 credits earned during one school year.
These two features on campus, along with PBL, create the foundation for the faculty and staff to create a student-centered learning environment that will prepare students with 21st Century skills for career, college, and life readiness.
