About Us » Our School

Our School

Daniel K. Inouye Elementary School is located on the Schofield Barracks Army Installation. Built in 1959, the school is one of ten schools (seven elementary, two middle, and one high school) in the Leilehua Complex, and we serve students from Early Childhood Special Education PreK, including an inclusive PreK partnership with Head Start, through fifth grade.


Our world needs our empathetic, skilled, and confident student leaders. We receive families into our ‘ohana which offers diversified learning and support services which benefits their continued life experiences. We value place, project, and service-based learning which empowers our students to explore, discover, create, and share. 

Curriculum, instruction, and assessment are aligned with the Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts and Mathematics, the Next Generation Science Standards, Hawai
ʻi Core Standards for Social Studies, National Health Education Standards, and the Hawaiʻi Content and Performance Standards for all other content areas.  Our Early Childhood Special Education Preschool aligns their work with the Hawaiʻi Early Learning and Development Standards.  We emphasize and value critical thinking, collaboration, creativity, communication, and the application of all things learned over rote memorization.

Many opportunities are available for parents and the community to become involved in school activities. The Parent Community Networking Center coordinator recruits volunteers for classroom and school activities, parent education workshops are planned regularly, and the school Parent Teacher Organization supports the school through its many family-based activities and grants to grade levels and staff members.


We are grateful for our strong partnerships with the HHBN 25th ID as well as Tripler Army Medical Center.
