Vision, Mission, & Values

Daniel K. Inouye Elementary empowers learners to explore, discover, create and share.
At Daniel K. Inouye Elementary, learners explore through hands-on experiences and inquiry-based learning to discover new ideas. We expect students to collaborate and communicate with each other and to rely on critical and creative thinking skills to gain new insights into their learning.
Take Care of Yourself.  Take Care of Others.  Take Care of Our School.
We believe...

All students can learn.
Therefore, we address individual strengths and needs by using a variety of teaching strategies.

Instruction should be rigorous and relevant.
Therefore, we provide instruction based on big understandings and essential questions.

Assessment should be ongoing and authentic.
Therefore, we use data from multiple assessments to impact instruction and measure learning.

A safe and nurturing environment is essential for learning.
Therefore, we promote caring and respectful relationships.

Education is a community responsibility.
Therefore, we encourage our families and community to be active in fulfilling our school's Vision and Mission.
