Standards for Member Schools

The Hawai'i Association of Independent Schools (HAIS) is an organization of member schools that advocates on behalf of independent education in Hawaii and participates actively in the educational dialogue in our community.  It provides services that strengthen our individual schools, and it supports their efforts to achieve educational quality and excellence for students.  HAIS facilitates collaborative efforts among member schools on issues of mutual concern, as well as partnerships to address shared needs.  Membership in the Association is predicated on each school’s adherence to these HAIS Standards for Member Schools.
