Great School! My daughter is in the Kindergarten, and she loves her teacher (Mrs. Akins), and the whole staff is sooo caring. My daughter has learned alot since the start of the school year. I recommend this school to anyone thinking about enrolling their children in this school.

Hawaiian Mission Academy Windward is a great shool with quality teachers who truly care about each individual student. My Son has attended for 5 years. He loves going to school and it is always a positive environment. Mr. Lane is a great principal and teacher. Uilani Bannister is on of the most gifted teachers I've ever seen. Supervision has not been a problem. The problem was addressed and fixed.

It is now called Hawaiian Mission Academy Windward. I was so disappointed about having to withdraw my child after one year. I liked the teachers, the small classes, strong Christian education and music program. The lack of attention to supervision was not seriously addressed by administration in 2010, leaving safety concerns. I wish that was not the case so my child could have remained.

WAS is a great school that offers a close knit student body and faculty that create a wonderful environment. My children have been attending for two years now and I am astounded at how well they have been developing spirtually, mentally, socially and physically. The teachers and staff are so flexible and easy to work with they really bend over backwards for you as well as the students.

Our two children have attending this school for several years. The school is a great match for our older child, he has thrived in the environment and participates in all school activities with enthusiasm. Our younger son is less enthusiastic about school and while he has certainly learned many things, we've also had some issues with lack of supervision, which has translated into school work not always getting done in class and also some bullying problems between the younger grades & older students. The teachers are responsive when problems are brought up, so that's positive. Overall, I would highly recommend the school. The teachers really care about the students.

My experience at was excellent. we did so many different things like hand bells, choir, and we really enjoyed running on the beach once a week. i loved all of my teachers and learned allot in many different ways. They did a great job in preparing me for high school.

Windward Adventist school is a wonderful little school with a staff that is caring and extremely professional. I have two kids currently attending (who love it!) and I am completely satisfied. In fact, I am so pleased with WAS that I couldn't imagine sending my children anywhere else. I am so thankful that this school is here.

There are so many advantages of this small school over the public system! The teachers are accesssible, the students watch over each other, my children enjoy learning! There are not a lot of extracarricular activities, but it is attached to a thriving christian church that is VERY active and one can easily join in their activities without having to be a member of their church.

School is great. We moved here a year ago and we are very impressed with the teachers, the principle and the staff. Very caring and good with the students. I highly recommend this school.

This is a great little school. The kindergarten and first grade, combined, has a total of 16 kids, so they get the attention they need and the teacher has time to tailor to students needs. They have a great music program and perform in the community often. There is ample recess and gym time, which is rare in these days, and I thing a boon to students. The emphasis on God is strong, always positive and never preachy. I looked at a lot of the schools in the area and am a teacher myself(even the very pricey name dropping types), and am completely satisfied with Windward Adventist.

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.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
