Waianae Intermediate is TERRIBLE. Teachers are lazy and the administration cares more about lining their pockets than the kids. The kids are a little rough around the edges, but have the most heart of any child I have ever taught. Learning is expected, but there are very low expectations for teachers and students. I would never send my child to this school. Most of the teachers are unqualified and have little to no experience. Parent involvement is low. There are great after-school activities, but there is so much emphasis placed on sports and not enough emphasis on learning.
Waianae Intermediate School has many opportunities for all children's interest. The after school program provides children with opportunities they would not get in any other school in Hawaii. We have a selection of the following: Cooking, art, music, football, volleyball, sewing, and many other activities. The great thing teachers give their own time for most of these activities. This is beyond the call of duty. Teachers do it for the love of the children. The good that has come of this is better attendance and better grade by the students. Way to go Waianae Intermediate Teachers and students :)
Waianae Intermediate is Constantly Evolving and looking into more Innovative ways to Improve itself and it "Self Image" overall through the Public and Private Sectors and Exhausting every available Resource available to them to keep the School Competitive and Technologically Savvy well into the 22nd Century.
Nine years ago when I started, about 3% met the standards in English and about 1% met the standards in math. Last year 2009, we had about 50% meet the standard in English and about 46% in Math. Talk about leaps and bounds!!! Oh and we still didn't meet NCLB.
I think this school is overall good.But the fights makes us look even worse since people look down upon us.But we can change the perspective and stereotypes on Waianae!
well the school is good but the fighting just makes the school look bad although it a good place and they have nice teacher
it's the best school ever. everyone is so close as a community and even though people judge us we still work as a community and once you learn you'll see how great it really is!
