Iliahi from my personal experience is one of the better schools that I know of. My son atends there and is involved with the Ukulele ensemble and recently returrned from a Waikiki Tour along with the Wahiawa Middle Shcool Jazz Band and they were fantastic!!. The staff puts their heart into the childrens development whether in core education and the arts. I would recommend if ever you move to Wahiawa and are in the neighbohood, have your sons or daughters attend Iliahi Elementary. You and your child will be in for a good expereince.
This school is not all that it is cracked up to be. The teachers are wonderful but the Principal has got to go. According to the state ranking system Iliahi used to be in the Top ten before this Principal came along. Every year that he has been there it has dropped significantly. They are now #100 out of 175 schools. Yes they are the best School in Wahiawa but that doesn't say much.
I have sent three children through Iliahi. It is a great school academically and also for overall character building. The teachers genuinely care about the children, they are hardworking and dedicated. Most teachers have been there for years! This is a testimony of their love for the school and community and above all, the children. Iliahi also has awesome parent support. This is the best school in Wahiawa.
