All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

2 of my sons attended, each until 4th grade. Hawaiian Culture is incorporated into curriculum heavily and staff is very 'tight' Beautiful campus, beautiful location Obvious drawbacks (poor peer groups, community challenges etc) If you are involved teachers and admin are 100% supportive

My grandson was excited about attending his first day of school at Makaha, he is in the first grade and only weighs 40 lbs. His first day was a nightmare, he was grabbed by two 6th grade girls and brought into the girls restroom where the grabbed his arms and legs and swung him up and let him go, hitting his head on the concrete and being knocked out, they then tried to lock him in a stall. The principal refused to write an incident report and said they were not responsible for the children after the bell rang, HE WAS IN THE SCHOOL when this happened, I will, as a loving grandmother, see that this gets media attention and also a report to the school board.

My son is in 2nd grade. He is new to the school, and to the community. He and I think the school has students and teachers with the biggest hearts in the world, which makes it easier to overcome any challenge we face.
