Waimea Country School is a small, independent elementary school located in Kamuela (Waimea) on the Big Island of Hawaii. Since 1996, the school has been dedicated to fostering each student’s sense of learning through their child-centered curriculum and multiage learning program. After 20 years of operation, their website had become a bit outdated and the board members, faculty and staff were ready to revamp their site to better represent WCS’s unique approach to learning.
With the redesign, they were excited not only for a fresh new look, but also to be able to make basic changes and edits to the site themselves, so WordPress was the perfect platform for them. The site is a customization of the aptly named Education Pro, from StudioPress. The home page boasts an expansive full-width layout with slideshow, as well as a featured post area to announce news and special events. The site also demonstrates an increasingly popular “sticky menu” where the header with logo and navigation menu bar stays at the top of the screen as you scroll down. Other special features include an events calendar plugin and social media integration.
Experience all of these features live at WaimeaCountrySchool.org.
