International School Proposed For Hau‘ula

Comments are due by today (March 25) on a minor conditional-use permit to allow an international school campus on 18.5 acres of ag-zoned land in Hau‘ula.

Asia Pacific Educational Foundation, with a physical address in Anaheim, Calif., reportedly bought the AG-2 parcel last July to develop an elementary, middle and high school. The land fronts 54-230 Kamehameha Hwy. between Ikea Loop and Imua Place, and extends mauka.

The city Department of Planning and Permitting requests written comments; a hearing has yet to be determined. The application from APEF (and local agent Tom Schnell of PBR Hawaii) describes classrooms, dormitories, offices, dean’s and caretaker homes, teacher studios, a gym, pool, produce gardens and nurseries, off-street parking and support infrastructure.

Contact planner Joette Yago at 768-8034 or jyago@honolulu.gov, and refer to File No. 2015/CUP-6.

The APEF mission is to promote international education in the region via intensive ESL training, Christian mission work, student exchanges and more.
