Mālama Honua Public Charter School (MHPCS) was first conceived as a group of educators, parents and community members began to meet informally and started to envision an innovative public charter school that would perpetuate the Hawaiian cultural values and contemporary 21st century skills that the 2013 Worldwide Voyage would embody and share with the world.
Our founders, Nainoa Thompson and Robert Witt envisioned a school whose mission was to create leaders who embodied the attributes of the ‘mind of the navigator’. We aspire to develop of the mind of the navigator through a native Hawaiian values based learning environment with rigorous instruction in core content areas and application of knowledge through place based project based authentic learning experiences.
'Ohana and community involvement is an essential component to the success of our school and our keiki. We strive to create a school, where as a village, we learn together to facilitate the education of our keiki so they know what it takes to become compassionate leaders to malama honua.
