Jeff and David are seniors and good friends. They've attended Punahou since kindergarten and play water polo together. But over the years, David has noticed some growing differences between them. Jeff is one of the "smart kids." He has always taken honors and AP classes, even in the summer.
Stories of Impact
Each year, over 5,000 alumni celebrate their Class Reunion. It is not only a time to reconnect with classmates, but also allows for reflection and appreciation of treasured memories of their time at Punahou.
The eager faces of children streaming into the winding woodchip trails of their new home each morning make the Sidney and Minnie Kosasa Neighborhood feel more like a wonderland than school. While bracketed by the normal rites and routines of school – snack-time, lunch and recess – the moments within these contours sparkle with childhood curiosity and joy.
Many of our donors have taken advantage of the ongoing Changing Lives Challenge, which matches every dollar donated to create or expand an endowed financial aid fund by $25,000 or more – doubling impact and increasing opportunities for promising children to attend Punahou without being limited by family finances.
