Posted June 21, 2007

We loved the afterschool programs the school had to offer. We don't understand why so many teachers are leaving the school in the middle of the year causing disruptions in the learning process. We are concerned about the one way communication and hope that next year the principal will be returning our phone calls to answer our concerns. We are looking forward to improved communications and a more positive and polite attitude from the office staff.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Hawaii used the Hawaii State Assessment (HSA) to test students in grades 3 through 8 and 10 in reading and math, and grade 10 in biology. The HSA is a standards-based test that measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Hawaii. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level on the test.
