The feeling visitors immediately have when they come to campus is one of openness and friendliness. New students find it easy to make friends and to become included in the school community.
IPA’s relatively small size creates big opportunities for all students to enjoy and engage in a wide variety of extra-curricular activities that include community service, sports, after-school enrichment classes, clubs, and student government.
The culture at IPA encourages mutual respect, inclusiveness, kindness, and collaboration among students, faculty, and staff while nurturing students’ talents and interests.
On any day of the week, one can stroll through the halls, from Kindergarten to Grade 12, and witness IPA’s emphasis on both the visual and performing arts. Ceramics, photography, paint and sculptures line the walls while students can be heard practicing a scene for the next theater performance or playing a classical piece on the grand piano.

The IPA Navigator Song
We are the Navigators and we lead the way.
Steering by the stars at night time,
Watching wind and waves by day.
Our wa‘a sails across the ocean,
Flying colors blue and gold.
Na keiki of Hawai‘i nei and of the USA,
I Mua Me Ka Ha‘aheo.
From our graduation day,
We know the world is ours tomorrow.
No matter if we leave or stay,
We will show Aloha spirit.
And we’ll remember what we learned.
Whenever we can, Help.
Let’s sail away,
ʻTil we meet again you’ll have a friend at IPA.
