Our Mission and Values call upon us to affirm the worth and dignity of everyone.
Each day, through our words and actions, we weave a mat that seats many – a welcoming community where individuals can realize the full expression of themselves. When all members of a school feel a true sense of belonging, the best teaching and learning takes place and the entire community flourishes.
We seek to create an environment in which the identities, experiences, and cultural backgrounds of our students, employees, families, and alumni are valued and respected. Throughout the Punahou journey, diverse voices and perspectives strengthen the learning experience for all. They also empower us to fulfill our kuleana and make meaningful contributions to the wider community of which we are a part.
Members of the Punahou community are expected to uphold the highest standards of fairness and inclusivity so that all may fully participate in the life of the School and contribute to its Mission.
