Im from Florida n we r thinking about moving to hawaii and I have 2 deaf childrn. 1 that will be 11 @ the end of this month and starts middle school next yr. i was wondering how is the school and is it a stay @ school like they have here in Florida in St.Augistine. They stay there for the wk and come home on the wkends. But my son doesnt go there he goes to a reg. school cuz they have a deaf and hard of hearing program in his school.

unsatisfactory education that doesn't challenge me enough. i wish it should be equilateral to the good education of a mainstream school.

I am a former student from Holomua. When I first started this school I did not know what to expect. I had just moved here from the Mainland and had no idea what to think. Soon after I started I made new friends and learned alot. The staff is very nice and make the children feel in place. They are not harsh but use firm dicipline. -Maddie-

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.
