This school is the worst school ive ever been to . yes , at first it was great but when it got to my 2nd year in it , it was the worst year of my life . Too much micronesians that bullies people . This is not where yu want to put yur child in . The teachers are so ungreatful and so mean . I talk from experiences.... and i am trying to move to another school right now.

Our administrators, coordinators, and directors from our provider are SO supportive. The staff is friendly and efficient. The teachers are positive and here for the kids!

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.
