- a
Character building, appropriate discipline principles and caring teachers are the foundational blocks of what we have experienced at NHKS. Would recommend this school to anyone who values education in a supportive, positive environment.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
Caring, patient teachers invested in building children into community leaders and patriots.




- a
Unfortunately, we experienced an unethical administration with a lack of critical thinking skills. They are unable to process situations which deviate from the norm in order to treat others with love and respect.

Handles bullying effectively: Strongly agree


- a
I have not had one issue with bullying at the school. Problem kids are dealt with immediately. Also, parent participation is high at this school, so I imagine this helps.

Supports LD students: Strongly agree


- a
Yes! They aren't large enough to deal with all needs, but for those they can accommodate, they do everything they can to support them.


Effective school leaders: Strongly agree


- a
This school is staffed by mostly military retirees or people associated with the military in some way. To say their leadership is effective is an understatement.

Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
Its in their school creed and they repeat it every morning a flag!

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
All the teachers we have experienced are awesome.


Amount of homework: Strongly agree


- a
Homework load is appropriate for each grade.

This school is absolutely amazing! We can't recommend it enough. We currently have two children at the school and will have a third next year. It was a sacrifice which we were very unsure of when we first registered our kids. Since the school came so highly recommended from our neighbors, we proceeded to enroll them. We couldn't be more happy with our decision. It is worth every penny. I know the tuition looks high, but after doing lots of research, relative to other schools on island, this school is a deal. Plus this school understands the military more than any other school on island. They work with parents and children to get through tough deployments and TDYs. Also, patriotism at this school is inspiring. No other school has WWII and Pearl Harbor survivors visit! Or astronauts! This is a testament to the school reputation. We also utilize the afterschool program and our kids WANT to go to afterschool care! I can't say the same for the public schools in the area. We actually tried the public elementary around the corner for a year before enrolling our first child. Although the teacher was ok, everything else about the school was a nightmare and the bureaucracy ridiculous. We hated the common core curriculum and my child was just another kid in a mass crowd of chaos. It was a regular occurrence to hear foul language and see kids pushing each other around after school as I walked my child home from school. Plus I hated the open campus utilized at most public schools in Hawaii. Both of my kids have excelled academically and we have no doubt it is because of the dedicated staff at NHKS. If you are on the fence, I would highly encourage you take a leap of faith and enroll your child/ren. You will not be disappointed! (Note: Don't ignore this school if your child has special needs. Although, NHKS doesn't have the resources to address all needs, they are excellent at working with parents of special needs children to see if they can accommodate them)
