オアフ島ダウンタウンにある名門女子校のセント・アンドリュース・プライオリー・スクールは昨夜、来秋より男子校の開校を予定していることを明らかにした。新たに開校される男子校は、州内で唯一の男子のみの小学校となる。 1867年にハワイ王朝のクイーンエマによって開校されたセント・アンドリュース・プライオリー・スクールは、男子と女子はそれぞれが異なった年齢で異なった技術を習得するため、性別ごとの特徴にあわせた教育と教育環境を提供することが必要であるとの考えを持っており、男子校を開校することは男子の成長に沿った最適な教育を受けたいと考える家庭の要望に応えるものになるだろうとしている。 新たに開校される男子校は既存の女子校の敷地内に併設される予定で、来秋にはキンダーガーデンと小学校1年生の受け入れが行われ、最終的には小学校5年生までの受け入れが行われる予定となっている。なお、教室などは男女別となるものの、食堂や運動場などは共有することになるとみられている。
