I like, actually, I love everything about 'Aiea High School! I am an exchange student from Europe and I am feeling so, so, so blessed that I got this unique opportunity to study at this high school, really! All the classes, people that I met - they are just awesome and all the positive energy that I feel and see around, it is just perfect! Teachers are outstanding, lessons are amazing and integrity is always the main point here! Every student is very responsible and respectful, every teacher knows his work and how to do everything. All is organized and so well done! It is a privilege for me to be in this school, it will forever and ever be my family!

Overall, it's not a bad school, it's actually pretty great in terms of culture, people, and the amount of activities yiu can do. Academics isn't the best though. I've had many teachers that don't teach the material they're supposed to in order to prepare them, don't teach at all, or move at a pace that they know is hard for others to keep up. There are always a few exceptions though, and you will find a couple of those, but it can be hard for students to strive here if they don't push themselves to.
There are teachers in every department who are enthusiastic and invested in the subjects and students they teach. There was an amazing college/academic counselor who devoted countless hours to researching options and resources for every kind of high school individual looking toward their future. What I liked about her was that she advocated for students to pursue higher education, but also acknowledged that such a path is not ideal for everyone and made the conscious effort to discuss alternative options with students as well. As far as changes go, I would like to see teachers supported in their (sometimes) single-handed efforts to fund their classrooms for materials and comfortable work environments, among other needs.
