Kaimuki was a pretty good school, except that they move at a fast pace and the teachers don't get paid for staying after school, hence students are unable to get help if they have fallen behind. We had one of or the best public middle school band on Oahu, and we made up a good percentage of graduating kids that were accepted and now attend private schools. Overall, I think that Kaimuki just needs to put more struggling students into slower, more helpful classes, just like any other public school in America.
This is not a good school for kids on the lower side of standards. They do not offer any supportive services if your child is struggling to keep up. My daughter would try coming during recess or after school for help, but the teacher would have appointments to go to or not available. They don't offer any tutoring like other schools do. I asked if she could be in a lower class rather then keep following behind. I was told that they have thousands of kids and they don t have anymore lower classes available. When I asked about the law no child left behind they said that they are in the standards. My opinion is that this is an uncaring school. They only care about meeting the standard and not about the kids being left behind as long as they have enough kids that do meet the standards they don t have to help the kids that don t.
kaimuki middle school is a great school with a lot of fun and nice students

Kaimuki middle school is a place with heart that strengthens the mind, the body and soul. Kaimuki is truly one of the safest schools around. It has a great band teacher and is known to have one of the best bands. We play pieces that are high school level and we get to travel around the world. I believe kaimuki middle school is the best place to send a child there because. They will feel safe and supported. No bullies whatsoever no bad things happen..
