We are a military family, and my son transferred here from public schools on the mainland. It is disturbing to me how my son comes home from school with complaints about not only students, but bus drivers, and teachers treating him differently because we are military. Even the faculty admitted that there is military prejudice at the school! As far as the curriculum goes, my 6th grade son is doing the exact same homework as my 11th grade son. Not sure if that means that the Elementary school is that far ahead, or the High School is that far behind :(

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.
