2013-2014 Open House Guide

Choosing the right school for your child is a big decision. Find out more about the unique programs at Hawaii's private schools in September's HONOLULU Magazine, on newsstands September 3.

For an up close look at the campus, a chance to meet the teachers and staff and chat with students, an open house is a great option. HONOLULU Family will be updating this list throughout the year as more open houses are scheduled. So check back for the latest.
