The Kilauea School sits on a 6.5-acre parcel on the outer fringes of the former Kilauea Plantation Community. The school consists of three buildings: an administration-classroom building, a cafeteria, and a former teacher’s cottage. The buildings are sited on the back portion of their lot with an extensive lawn in front, allowing for a sweeping view of the entire campus. The Kilauea School is significant as a typical rural schoolhouse on the island of Kauai and for its associations with the development of public education in the town of Kilauea.
