In our “Client Spotlight”, we enjoy letting the world know a little bit more about our clients, in their own words…
Assets School is a critical and vital part of the educational system in Hawaii that provides premier educational services to students who learn differently, such as students who are gifted and/or dyslexic, or simply bright learners struggling in school. Assets provides a learning environment for youngsters who faltered in typical, mainstream settings and need an alternative approach. There is no other school like it in the State.
Over the next several years, Assets School will experience unprecedented growth and expansion. Recently, Assets purchased the three-and-a-half acre campus that they had leased for the last 21 years with plans to build a new campus for their K-8 program on it. The two-year construction project is scheduled to begin in June 2015. A capital campaign will be launched to raise funds, support, and awareness for building the new campus.
Also in June 2015, Assets High School will move to a new location and will be named: Assets High School: Academy of the Pacific Campus. This will provide Assets a greater capacity to serve students who learn differently.
2015 marks Assets’ 60th anniversary. Assets School has been transforming students’ lives since its inception in 1955. Our theme, “60 years of learning that transform lives,” celebrates Assets’ vision to create a community in which all children thrive and realize their own potential, so that society benefits from their unique talents and abilities.
With so many incredible milestones in 2015, we plan to share our pride with the greater Hawaii community in a variety of different ways.
The 60th anniversary car magnet will be given to parents who join our parent association group, Assets Parent Ohana (APO), this year. The magnet will also be given as a gift to some of our major donors to celebrate our school. Our hope is to raise Assets’ visibility in our community as many of us proudly display our magnets on our cars. Living on Oahu, we tend to spend a fair amount of time sitting in our cars during our commute. During our valuable commute time people will come to know that Assets has been transforming lives for 60 years. We couldn’t be more proud and will show off our beautiful custom car magnets with pride!
