7 Habits
We strive to help our students develop leadership qualities that will lead to success in their future relationships and careers. We use the 7 Habits Leader in Me program as the foundation because itʻs based on timeless principles of effectiveness.
  Habits of Happy Kids  

Puʻu Kukui parents are encouraged to learn the habits too! We believe students will achieve their highest level of success if we develop strong home school connections. Join us for a series of parent sessions on Wednesday nights in September (6th, 13th and 20th). For more information, please email the school's Leadership Coordinator, Kristen Stafford @
