This is a great school that will only get better. The teachers are amazing. I am looking forward to another successful year at LCPCS!

This school is horrible. It has bad education, tons of drama, tons of fights, a lot of bullying, barely any electives, and a bad sports program, sure the teachers love us and we're all family in heart but, the school is not really helping with us be ready for our future.


Posted April 8, 2011

School's awesome, smaller classes means that the teacher gets to see the student individually as a name and not a number. Administration, faculty,staff, AND students treat each other as family.


Posted April 7, 2011

This school has serious problems - lack of administration commitment and community support. Student moral is low and almost no electives and team sports.

Part of an educational program is the balance of exposure to Sports and Music which also teaches students skills in organization, planning and team work. In this regard, the Wrestling Team and Music Program are a great dimension to the Laupahoehoe School Program.

This school is awesome! They are above average from the other schools around here and the Teachers are amazing! They keep you updated with problems and whats going on with your child! One class for each grade makes for a great small school where you're child wont get lost in the mix!!

This school is below all state levels and the structure is poor. The teachers take advantage by hiding behind Hawaiian cultures. The lack of respect for education is like no place else. Do not send your child to Laupahoehoe.

Small size affords great opportunity to learn and participate in extra curricular activities.
