My Students

K. High School, Project Ulupono’s mission is to provide a challenging but meaningful education for all students who otherwise, have experienced failure within a traditional academic setting.

The Project Ulupono program is able to address students needs by integrating curriculum that focuses on skills needed to enter the workforce and/or attend a post high school institution.

About 80% of the students commute from an outlying area of 112 square mile to the campus. School data shows that the percentage of students who receive free and reduced priced meals continues to increase each year. Due to the type of community we have our school is eligible for federal funding for free lunch and transportation this academic school year. Despite the fact that most students are from low income high poverty status and community challenges.

My Project

My students need a non-traditional academic setting to grasp their attention and focus their learning. Many of them have not been successful in the traditional school setting.

Project Ulupono accommodates the needs of these students by focusing on project based learning.

This school year Project Ulupono will create a school garden. Students will be in charge of planning and carrying out the building of the garden and will also be in charge of the care-taking and up keep of the garden. These gardening tools and supplies will assist with the care-taking and up keep of their garden. Students will use them to build, plant and care for their garden.
