History: Soto Academy is a non-denominational day school for boys and girls from Kindergarten to Grade 6. It is located on the grounds of Soto Mission Church in Nuuanu. The school was founded in 1990 when Bingham Tract School closed and its staff re-located to Soto Mission to start Soto Academy. Both staff and students who followed the school to Soto Academy immediately felt comfortable and at home, because classrooms were simulated to the old Bingham Tract School classrooms. The fine reputation established in the past for quality education continues at Soto Academy. Philosophy: Soto Academy is dedicated to developing good citizens and academic proficiency through character and physical development. We help students develop to their full potential socially, mentally and physically. Students are taught self-discipline, a sense of organization, and independence. We encourage creative thinking, pride and quality in accomplishment, and respect for self and others with "the 3 R's." School is an extension of home. A high level of communication is maintained between home and school. Add Facebook and Twitter Accounts:SotoAcademy. Facebbok.com/SotoAcademy.
