HBA used to be a good school. In 2013 your child will receive a public school education at a Punahou tuition price tag. Some good teachers remain; but overall HBA elementary is now a very poor environment to nurture a child's psyche unless they are gifted AND popular. Parent/teacher/student cliques prevail. Very secretive toxic society of with teachers/counselor/coaches/principal turning a blind eye to social bullying. Some of the bullying of students (and parents) is inflicted by teachers. If your kido is struggling academically or socially at all, don't torture them here. You will regret it. Save your money and try for Iolani or Punahou or Maryknoll or Sacred Hearts or St. Andrews. Anything-but-HBA.
My son has been at HBA since the 4th grade. What I love about this school is that is it academically challenging and the enviornment of the campus is very nuturing. The teachers really care about the students and the best thing is that they not only preach Christian values - they live and practice them everyday.
