What it's like to be a student at Kohala Adventist School
Eighth Grade Completion Requirements
The required subject areas for completion of eighth grade:
- Fine Arts

- Science and Health
- Social Studies
KOA School administers the Iowa Tst of Basic Skills (ITBS) in the fall of each year for grades 3-8. We do not test students in grades K-2 as they are still in a developmental learning curriculum, preparing them for these types of academics.
Test results are used by the faculty to identify strengths and areas needing improvement in the academic program. Adjustments are made accordingly.
KOA School holds Parent-Teacher Conferences. Please refer to the school calendar for exact dates.
Each year the school organizes field trips with a hands-on curriculum, that maximizes this opportunity for socialization and educational resources.
Students learn about everything from horses to island history to swimming and marine life. The outdoor focus rotates each year.
Community Service Days
Each year includes days set aside to get students out of their chairs and into the community, finding a way to contribute. Whether it's cleaning up the side of an adopted highway or serving in ways to positively contribute to our island, students learn early on how to get involved with their community and see just how much difference it makes.
