It was five or six years before the first automobile, and more than a decade before the first airplane came to Hawaii that Hauula Elementary School started up in its current location. One hundred years later, the school will celebrate its centennial anniversary with a special three-day series of events from April 7-9, 2000.

A Brief History
Hauula School, as it was first named, was founded in 1900 at its present site as part of the Territory of Hawaii’s Department of Public Instruction, Ko’olauloa School District. Written records prior to the 1919-20 school year are not available.
