Academic, Learning and Social Emotional Support
In all divisions of the School there are deans, counselors and learning support specialists who comprise teams to provide student support in the areas of academic counseling, social-emotional counseling and learning support. We recognize that students have diverse needs and are impacted by a variety of factors. When students struggle, early intervention is key to effectively addressing learning and social, emotional or behavioral needs. If you have questions about your child’s needs, please contact your child’s administrative dean, in the Junior School, or dean, in the Academy.
Punahou’s 76-acre campus is a welcoming place for students and supports learning, sports, co-curricular activities as well as play and socializing. The campus also hosts families and community members attending the diverse activities and events on campus. The safety of students on campus is a high priority for the School.
A program is carefully followed in an effort to improve each student’s physical and psychological health, to prevent disease or to control its spread, to maintain satisfactory community hygiene and safety, and to administer first aid for injuries that may occur during the school day.
A menu is published monthly, sent to Junior School homerooms, posted in the Academy and is available at punahou.edu/menus with links published each month in the Source, the parent e-newsletter. The menu is subject to change.
Students are expected to respect their cafeteria by using courtesy and common sense in behavior, especially related to quantities of food selected, and to appropriately clean up lunch and snack materials. This is an expectation of all Punahou students.
