Welcome to Kalama!

Kalama is home to over 900 students ranging from past Huelo to Kipahulu. We serve grade 6th through 8th grade. We are one of the most diverse schools in the state both ethnically and socioeconomically. Kalama is a true representation of the state of Hawaii because you can see Hawaii in each of our student's faces. Students at Kalama embrace the diversity of our student population and at the same time have respect for Hawaiian culture and values, understanding the importance of this island and the towns that they come from. Many of our students are quite talented in music, art, song, sports, academics, and leadership. They navigate our campus with pride and respect for each other.
Below you will find helpful resources to help your student succeed at Kalama Intermediate.
