About Punahou School

The school has a rich heritage and tradition, that values and thrives on forward-thinking outlooks, original ideas and the energy to create a future as limitless as the vision of its founders. At Punahou, all that we do serves the broader purpose of helping students reach their fullest promise as responsible citizens of the world.

The Punahou community is made up of a diverse group of people from around the world. The more diverse the faculty and staff, the richer the experiences of the students and of the community as a whole. Diversity is an important part of the Punahou experience, and is a core value.

Punahou makes a serious commitment to continued growth and development based on your needs, desires or ideas for professional enrichment. You have freedom in the classroom and the opportunity to develop your own curriculum. You are expected to keep abreast of current developments in your profession, to maintain and expand your academic interests and competencies, and to collaborate in creating a coherent curriculum.

This unique combination of professional development support and autonomy in the classroom gives you the opportunity to help students explore, discover and reach their horizons while perfecting your craft and cultivating untapped talents of your own.
