Please consider the unique opportunity that Paia has in housing a full Hawaiian immersion school. (Currently, the immersion program is knee-deep.) Paia School could become the envy of many. To think that your child, regardless of racial background, could receive a world-class education (reading, math, science, social studies, etc.) via Hawaiian traditions and values - free of charge. Paia could become a Hawaiian cultural mecca, bringing to Paia the support and involvement of revered Hawaiian cultural practitioners.
