Welcome to Waimea Country School!
Waimea Country School is a small, independent
K-6 day school located in Kamuela, Hawai‘i, serving
children ages 5 to 12 since 1996. Our school is dedicated
to engaging each child’s own sense of learning
and encourages children to take responsibility for
their own work to promote a lifelong love of learning.
At our campus at St. James’ Circle,
students are enrolled in kindergarten
through sixth grade.
We offer a child-centered curriculum
embracing a multiage
learning program that incorporates
literature, fine arts, mathematics, science, Hawaiian
Studies, health and fitness, social studies, technology
and study skills. Integration of
many subjects helps student learning gain vitality,
depth and relevance.
Our low student-teacher ratio ensures
a personalized experience for every child and forges
close bonds between students and teachers. This builds
student confidence and encourages children to take
risks with their learning, to challenge themselves,
and to grow.
Waimea Country School students learn
to be in charge of their own learning – to be
thinkers, challengers, and wonderers. Our graduates
develop into eager, creative learners who are well-prepared
for life’s challenges – academically, socially,
