About Us

The ROOTS mission is to provide educational and learning programs that allow children to think independently, engage collaboratively, and make connections across disciplines. We strive to create a sustainable, educational environment where children are given the opportunities to blossom into happy and healthy individuals, and believe lifelong learners are created through active inquiry, exploration, and meaningful involvement in their community.

We believe children have unlimited potential and are not defined by grade level. Through hands-on, project-based learning to provide engaged, educational experiences — our teachers design their course curriculum based on a combination of State and National standards, and student interest. Class sizes are purposefully small to enable our teachers to appreciate and encourage multiple types of intelligence.

ROOTS is a non-denominational, non-profit 501c3 corporation licensed by the Hawaii Council of Private Schools and the State of Hawaii Department of Human Services, and in the process of becoming accredited by the Hawaii Association of Independent School (HAIS).
