hawaii academy of arts and science public charter school

Accepting applications for 5th grade for the 2020-21 school NOW.

REAL Class hosts 18 of the highest potential 5th and 6th grade students on the east side of the Big Island. Not an hour or two a week pullout; not an extra chapter in the math book. Over 180 days a year, over 6 hours every school day of academic rigor and freedom: Puna’s brightest students challenging themselves and each other to push the limits of their potential.

A single class of 5th graders will continue the next year as 6th graders. A new class of 5th graders will start every even numbered year (2020, 2022, 2024, etc.)

Accelerated Learners


8:00 am to 2:00 pm Monday - Friday


Very similar to regular DOE schools.



Students order school lunch or bring their own.


Parents provide transportation to and from school.


Charter school students can no longer attend local schools’ A+ programs. Some students go to Boys/Girls Club at Pahoa High.


REAL Class is one of many fine programs at the Hawaii Academy of Arts and Sciences Public Charter School.


REAL Class resides in pleasant and modern air-conditioned classrooms.


REAL Class is a self-contained program, meaning there will not usually be a separate art teacher, a PE teacher, etc.  However, these subjects are part of our curriculum and we integrate these topics and concepts into other classroom activities.
