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!
Review Aiea High School
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.
In my four years at Aiea High School, I have been taught by many good and many bad teachers. There are some who are fully committed to help their students achieve the goals that they set for themselves. These teachers are available in or outside of class in order to assist students in need of help. Teachers that have used fun and great learning techniques to get the best out of their students and themselves as well. But there are others who don't share that same commitment. Some of these teachers can be very unfair to students at times. A good example of that would be from the Math Department. Most of these teachers are unable to connect with their students because of their poor teaching techniques or their laziness to actually help student learn. The Math Department in AHS, has frustrated a majority of the student body including me. I had taken 3 years of math and have had 5 different math teachers in those 3 years. And out of the 5 teachers only one teacher, Mr. Salgado, has helped me learn and fully understand the concepts. Although I only had Mr. Salgado for half a semester, he is the best math teacher I ever had in my 3 years in Aiea. After he left I refused to take a 4th year of math as I didn't feel like the remaining math teachers would give me the same amount of help that Mr. Salgado gave to me. Also, some of these teachers tend to do things that are very unnecessary and have no benefit to any student's learning. At Aiea High School, I describe the teachers here as a mixed bag, some are good and some are horrible.
