All three of my children have attended this school and I think it is a good school. All of my children's teachers were wonderful. I would recommend it!

As a former student, I disagree with what the others say about Keaau School. I excelled and made the best of my education with the excellent teachers. I am successful because of my child-bearing years at Keaau.

This school is lacking in discipline and academic focus!

Be careful. Do your research before enrolling. This school needs very close monitoring of staff.
