Culturally Rich English Learners At Kanoelani 
Kanoelani students come from a diverse group of cultures.  All the cultures are as interesting and as special as our students.  We currently have 63 students in our EL (English Learner) Program.  Our EL population speaks twelve different languages. They are: Ilocano, Tagalog, Spanish, Japanese, Chuukese, Pampango, Vietnamese, Arabic, Greek, Italian, Bosnian, and Marshallese.
