Being able to send the majority of our teachers to Kupu Hou has been one of the best professional development opportunities for our small school ever! Teachers returned excited to try out what they learned. Students loved the hands-on, relevant and meaningful lessons… Above all, our Smarter Balanced test scores finally increased after three years of being stagnant in ELA and one year of dropping in math. Kupu Hou has really helped to change the way teaching and learning is happening at Haleʻiwa Elementary School.”

The Kupu Hou experience revitalizes what is most rewarding about being an educator…This work makes sense on all levels.
