Hello! If you are living in the Tripler housing, then Moanalua Elem. and Middle are by far the ultimate choice. The schools are about one minute from the Tripler gate and are two of the best schools in the state. However, if you are commuting to the hospital, the traffic into Tripler is totally impossible! The schools being(1 min.) on the way to tripler your kids may be late every day for school! In that case it may be better to go with a school in your housing area (assuming you are military). Then again, if you are early everyday, your kids can be dropped off as you are crawling along to the gate(and probably pass you up walking to school!). Most of the public schools on base or just off base are very good, like Hickam Elem., Pearl Harbor, Pearl Harbor Kai, Nimitz, Etc.. HOWEVER, I would strongly discourage Aliamanu Elem. (sorry p.j.) they are undergoing restructuring and cater more to the local high rise apartments. I am sorry if I sound bias but im just telling it like it is. Many excellent schools are the same distance away from Tripler such as Gus Webling Elem.(excellent tech. instructor w/monthly student newscasters and studio) For middle schools, Moanalua Middle, and Aiea Inter..(Aiea Intermediates drama dept. surpasses most of the states high schools with their broadway like musicals).32487
Will you live at Tripler? Normally the school is depending on your district, or you would have to request a geographical exception (GE). Moanalua Elementary school is very nice and would be my choice because the middle school is right next to it, if you were to stay long enough in Hawaii to send your child there. Aliamanu Elementary is also nice, don't let the outside of the building fool you, the staff is very goal oriented and they are working well with the children. Good luck on your move, and I hope you will enjoy Hawaii.32488
Hi. You can click on the "Find a School" feature on the green menu bar at the top of this page, and enter a location and grade level to see a map and list of all schools in a given area, and read parents comments about them. I'm not from HI, but I know everyone's definition of "best" is different. Some people want schools that emphasize "the basics" like reading, writing, and math. Other parents prefer schools with a broader curriculum, that includes music, the arts, etc. Some parents appreciate private schools that emphasize morals and religious perspectives. Some parents want a school that offers before and aftercare, or extracurriculars like sports. Only you know what you value most. 32489
