I think Akamai Academy of kailua will give us a wider options if we're thinking of future expansion. However, Aikahi Park Academy sounds more close to heart and home :-)
I do love this idea of our very own school and hope it will come to life one day. However, I know I am simple minded therefore I can't comprehend a school in a larger scale other then a little preschool. Initially, when i heard about this idea, i thought this school is to be taught by each one of us sibling like example anh Phong and Jen teaching math, Hanh teachs English, Huong in Arts... and me just cooking and keeping the place neat and clean. I thought it just going to be a little prechool where little children come to learn the simple and basic of what needed to prepare them to enter elementary. But after our first telecomference, i learned that some of us have greater ideas and want to make our school stands out amongst the ordinaries and be the best school there is in Hawaii. However, to be honest, I can't see myself fully and equally committing to this project until Ashley is off to college since it is not possible for me to take much time off from work and from involement in Ashley's daily school routine.
I was thinking the first school is to be taught by the Doans and once we have established our foundation, then we can expand and hired people to run other locations, or even franchize out. I also thought this will be taken place when we are in our retired age...
Sorry for all the negative thoughts, and hope to continue be invited to join the group in future discussions.
