School Learning Plan

Aloha High School 2021-2022

District Goal: WE empower all students to achieve post high school success

A Slice Of Our Story:

Aloha High School now has a set of Core Values, developed and approved through the Aloha Leadership Team.  These Core Values include beliefs and attitudes that will guide our behavior and relationships with others. They are the important and enduring ideals, shared by the members of our culture, about what is good or desirable and what is not. These values exert major influence on the behavior of the individuals within our culture and serve as broad guidelines in all situations.  These are the filters for all of our decision-making from this day forward.  Aloha High School’s Core Values are:

      We are Warriors

            We work hard

            We build trust

            We express gratitude

            We own it

            We are worth it

      We are 'Ohana

Out of this work, the Aloha Leadership team developed a Mission Statement and wrestled with our school tagline.  Our Mission Statement identifies the reason or reasons for our existence.  Through lots of discussion and debate, the team came to consensus around the following Aloha High School Mission:

We educate, empower, and inspire through our strong community and rigorous academic practice.

The existing Aloha tagline of “Grit to Gold” has been a point of debate for some time and the Aloha Leadership Team decided to tackle it.  A tagline is intended to let you quickly and efficiently sum up what an organization is all about and leave a lasting impression during a short encounter with the recipient.  Again, through lots of transparent discussion and gathering input from stakeholders, we rallied around a change.  Our new tagline is:

We are Warriors.  We are Ohana.

The Aloha Leadership Team will continue working this year to identify what each of our value statements might look like within our classrooms, hallways and everywhere we gather as a community.

The work will continue as we also develop a set of school goals.  These goals will be strategic objectives which outline expected outcomes and guide our efforts. These goals will direct activities, define performance standards, constrain the pursuit of unnecessary goals and function as incentives.  To help in these efforts, The Aloha Leadership Team will now have subcommittees focused on school culture, systems and instruction.  We will also expand student voice in this work.
