Hanalani Schools recently put the final touches on the new east wing of its student activity center, and the school ohana couldn’t be more pleased.

The new fine arts facility marks the completion of a larger school project to provide diverse and extra-curricular facilities to students.

“The wing was opened for this school year,” said school public relations director Titus Stone. “The whole bottom floor of the wing is a fine arts center, and then we do have some smaller offices. The top has some classrooms, and there’s a college and academics services office where our high school students can look for post-high school options.”

Hanalani’s art teachers, Jon Eoute and Chris Salter, are both expanding the art curriculum to match the new studios. And within the new fine arts area will also be a gallery hall, displaying students’ work.


“There’s plenty of room to move around,” said Salter. “We’ve got a kiln room, too, and most schools don’t have that.”

The student activity center also is home to the library, ILH gymnasium, band room and performance platform. Money came from fundraising efforts of the students over many years, along with donations from both parents and the community.

Hanalani Schools Mililani campus offers academic and extracurricular programs for children from preschool through grade 12 and serves over 750 students. The east wing is the sixth building project since the school opened in 1975.
