It is a heavily military influenced school, so you see a lot of new faces all the time and experience many cultures and diversity and overall it is great! The athlete support is great, they make sure everyone is on the right path to succeed, and most programs keep their athletes in line. The teachers provide a lot of help and support, create an environment where students can feel free to ask for help and feel comfortable doing so. Our administration go t all events, sporting events, academic recognition events, music events, etc. We definitely feel support for them. Lastly, our student leaderships and are amazing. We have tremendous participation in school from students, helping make other students more comfortable, and making school somewhere people truly want to come to.

My older brother graduated from Admiral Arthur W. Radford High School and my older sister attended for two years. And now I graduate from Radford in less than three months! This school has it's significance in my family and I'm glad it does. Radford has a variety of culture, considering it has a lot of military families attending. The activities and clubs they offer make it hard not to get involved and they're always trying to do more for it's student body. I'm proud to almost be a Radford Ram Alumni!
The thing that I love about going to my school is that everyone around you is unique in their own way. Culturally speaking, Radford High School is one of the most ethnically diverse schools in Hawai'i, due to it being the most easily accessible from our surrounding military bases near Pearl Harbor. There's nothing a High School student can't do while attending Radford. We offer world languages, several AP classes, and many clubs! Student involvement in sports & extracurricular activities also plays a big role for students here at Radford.

One facet I'd like to see change is our classroom conditions. Throughout my 4 years as a student at Radford, none of my classes have been supplied with air conditioning. Being pestered by the heat I think contributes largely to our learning & focus in each of our 7 periods, and without funding by the state of Hawai'i to receive installation of air conditioning, each classroom has 1 or 2 oscillating fans with a ratio of 30 students per class.
