Welcome to Waimea Country School!

Waimea Country School is a small, independent, elementary day school located in Kamuela, Hawai‘i, serving children ages 4 to 12 since 1996. Our school is dedicated to engaging each child’s own sense of learning and encourages children to take responsibility for their own work to promote a lifelong love of learning.

We offer a child-centered curriculum embracing a multiage learning program that incorporates literature, fine arts, mathematics, science, Hawaiian Studies, health and fitness, social studies, technology and study skills. Integration of many subjects helps student learning gain vitality, depth and relevance.

Our low student-teacher ratio ensures a personalized experience for every child and forges close bonds between students and teachers. This builds student confidence and encourages children to take risks with their learning, to challenge themselves, and to grow.

Waimea Country School students learn to be in charge of their own learning – to be thinkers, challengers, and wonderers. Our graduates develop into eager, creative learners who are well-prepared for life’s challenges – academically, socially, and ethically.
