About Us

E komo mai! 

We are excited to start this school year with our 6-year full accreditation from WASC and the honor of being named The Most Improved Charter School in the state of Hawaii. Kamaile Academy's vision is "Where learning leads to endless opportunities and infinite worth." By preparing our students to be college-ready, this will allow them to pursue their chosen careers, live meaningful lives, and improve their communities. 

Kamaile Academy is a community-based charter public charter school that seeks to support the "whole child."  Through our Student Support Services that includes our Navigators' Center, Counseling Department, English Language Learner Department, and Special Education Department, our students and families are provided meaningful activities and comprehensive support to make student success a reality.

I hope you will take the time to visit our campus. There are many volunteer opportunities in the garden, in classrooms and after school programs.  Support our students and teachers as they embark on their school year.

Please feel free to contact me or any of our Associate Principals with any concerns or ideas you would like to share. The three Associate Principals are:

  • Natalie Zisko: Grades PreK-3 (joining us on August 18) 
  • Paul Kepka: Grades 4th-6th
  • Dan Jenkins: Student Support Services (includes Special Education)

I am currently overseeing the secondary school (7th-12th) as we recruit for an Associate Principal for the middle school and high school. 

I appreciate you taking the time to learn about Kamaile.  I look forward to seeing our returning students and families and welcoming our new `ohana. 

Mahalo nui loa,

Anna Winslow
