Kauai High is a school that emphasizes rigor in its classes. Students are expected to perform at their best in all arenas. Students by and large are respectful to teachers. staff and peers which creates a safe learning atmosphere. Like any large high school it is not without its challenges, but student behavior is managed in a timely way. There is a wide range of classes and students strive to achieve academically. Our focus this past couple of years has been to "Believe in your Dreams"! This motto drives our efforts to go beyond our perceived potential to reaching higher and farther for what we can dream about. Teachers are highly qualified and experienced in their fields. There are also a myriad of student clubs, activities and athletics for students to expand their experiences with. Our Key Club has been nationally recognized for their Leadership and Service. Various sports gain recognition as KIF champions and state contenders. The 2013-14 Football team was the State Runner Up this fall. Kauai High is a great school to develop confident, skilled, and aspiring students.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Hawaii used the Hawaii State Assessment (HSA) to test students in grades 3 through 8 and 10 in reading and math, and grade 10 in biology. The HSA is a standards-based test that measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Hawaii. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level on the test.
