This chapter shows how Pope switched the outdated missionary curriculum to a progressive model to ensure meaningful employment for the girls’ future. She also instates teacher training for advanced pupils. Pope deals with several unqualified and unfit teachers. The queen, while ruling her kingdom, moves into an administrative type of role in the school to support both an elevated education and mitigate behavioral issues amongst the pupils. The queen’s frequent attendance at the school is astonishing. Feeling that the school never had a better leader, Charles Bishop, with the queen’s endorsement, offers Pope the esteemed position of founding principal for the soon-to-be-built new school for native Hawaiian girls, Kamehameha School for Girls.

Keywords:   Curriculum, Teacher Training, Unfit Teachers, Charles Reed Bishop, Kamehameha School for Girls
