Superintendent's Message

Aloha to all of the members of the Nanakuli-Waianae Complex Area School Community.  It is with sincere appreciation that I write this to thank you all for your commitment and dedication to the children of the Leeward Coast.  It is important that as a community, we embrace the concept of “educational excellence for each and every child” and engage in continuous collaboration so that the individual needs of the students are met to ensure their academic success.
Our Vision is to provide every child with access and opportunity to high quality education which prepares them to be global thinkers and local leaders who will create a positive difference in Hawaii and the world.  
We will accomplish this through our initiatives around Early Childhood Education – K Readiness for all students, Effective Teachers and School Leaders, Technology Integration for the 21st Century Classroom, Comprehensive Student Support Services for Health and Wellness, College and Career Readiness and Family and Community Engagement/Partnerships
We look forward to our journey as we strive towards excellence “E Po`okela” in our schools and we need to do this together “Kakou” as a community in support of all of the students and their future. 
Please join us in this endeavor.
Mahalo Nui Loa,

Ann Mahi
