Adm. Arthur W. Radford High School Reviews

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.

Radford High School has provided me with several opportunities to learn. These lessons came in a multitude of paths. One of which would be my extracurriculars, in which I’d devoted a vast majority of my time over these past two years. I’d learned that sometimes, it’s important that you say no to an obligation. My first year of high school I found myself pouring all of my energy into a sport, a play, a club, or some other school activity instead of my family or myself. Secondly, I learned to push myself academically. To compete I’d need to take advanced courses and do well in them. The teachers I had been fortunate enough to have over these two years; namely Mrs. Pattison, CPO Belk (USN ret.), Mr. Armstrong, and Mr. Baba, all made a significant influence over my development as a student. I appreciate these men and women who dedicate their lives to help the growth of the future and are forced to deal with little to no financial reward for there efforts.
My overall experience at Adm. Arthur W. Radford High School was pretty good. The teachers there are all nice, caring, and very helpful. When entering in their classrooms, they are all very welcoming and understanding. The staffs and custodians are all nice and they work really hard to make our campus look nice. Even if I didn't have the other teachers they would still be very nice to me and I could say hi to them as I see them around the campus. Radford has a college and career center, where there are two kind staffs who will help you figure out what colleges you may like, sign up for scholarships or grants, and make sure you fill out things on time and turn them in. So overall, Radford High School is a really good school.
