Honors Program

Thank you for your interest in the Kailua Intermediate School Honors Program! We are proud of our academically rigorous Language Arts, Math, Social Studies and Science curricula. It is for students who thrive in classes that challenge them. Students learn to collaborate with others, take on leadership roles, and participate in projects such as History Day, Science Fair, Math Counts, Geography Bee, etc. Students are expected to do homework and meet deadlines. They work closely with their teachers, but are also expected to take the initiative to seek help when needed.


Please Read: A successful Honors student desires the challenge of a rigorous program. Students complete quality work and projects on time; devote 1-2 hours a day to study, read, write, and prepare for classes; uses time-management strategies to balance school, family time, and extracurricular activities; seeks help from their teachers; attends school with few absences; and contributes to a positive learning environment allowing their peers to learn with minimal classroom disruptions. Students challenge themselves.They read for pleasure on their own, enjoy problem-solving activities, and enjoy learning about the world around them. Students: Are you willing to meet the expectations of an Honors Program?
