Progressive Learning Environments

Facility and educational programs at Punahou have become so intertwined that one cannot be explained or experienced without the other. Reflecting dramatic changes in education, learning environments have undergone a radical transformation in recent years. If self-contained classrooms defined school for most of the 20th century, it appears that collaborative and interdisciplinary spaces signal its evolution in the 21st.

While campus planning is a complex and costly process, it is also a concrete and impactful way to manifest new educational paradigms. As Punahou’s story illustrates, reimagining learning environments begins with a compelling vision, is carried forward by an inspired and generous community, and is brought to life through the thousands of students and teachers whose educational experience is made richer and more relevant as a result. We invite you to learn more about the future of our campus.
