History of Momilani

Momilani Admin BuildingBuilt in 1972, Momilani Elementary School (Kindergarten-Grade 6, 400 students) is located at the top of Pearl City in a peaceful setting with a panoramic view stretching from Honolulu, across Pearl Harbor, to Makakilo.  Our school population is comprised of students from a predominantly middle socioeconomic background.



Working together to make Momilani a caring and responsive community has led to student and school success. As a result, we have been nationally recognized, receiving awards for National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence (1997, 2004, 2010) and National School Safety, Discipline and Drug Prevention (1997).
