Principal's Message

Our Philosophy
Although the current COVID-19 situation necessitates a change in our approach to educating all of our keiki, we believe that learning can occur everyday in all environments.  Although we acknowledge that “Distance Learning” or a “Hybrid” model can never replace the school campus experience, we believe that together we can still give students a rich learning experience throughout this pandemic.
Vision Statement:
To achieve excellence in all that we do - E Po’okela!
Mission Statement:
Waianae Intermediate School provides:
a safe, productive learning environment.
a curriculum driven by standards and the General Learner Outcomes (GLOs), and
open and timely communication with all stakeholders.

Hybrid Learning Starting Soon!

Aloha Families, A letter will be forthcoming, but we wanted to give all of our families enough time to prepare. Beginning on March 1st, we will begin welcoming back all students to campus on a rotational basis according to your child's schedule given out at the start of the school year. If you are unsure of your child's schedule, please feel free to reach out to your child's counselor at 305-2700. Furthermore, if you selected virtual only learning at the start of the year, your child will NOT be assigned to a day on campus. If you signed up for virtual only at the start of the year and wish to rescind this option, you will need to submit your request in writing to WIS. In the meantime, please use this time to complete your child's bus application, purchase uniforms, and gather any other supplies to prepare your children. Last, we are excited to safely bring our students back on campus. We have conducted 2 external reviews of our campus safety protocols. Both reviews showed that we are ready for our students to safely return to campus. However it will take cooperation from all of us to ensure that our entire community remains safe. Please remind your child about our 3 key rules on safety: 1) Wear your Mask properly 2) Wash and Sanitize your hands 3) Physically distance ourselves 6 feet. Once again, we are so excited to welcome our students back to campus. We will get through this together. Aloha, Mr. Wataoka Principal
