Hawaii Department of Education Reviews

16 reviews
All Categories
The Hawaii Department of Education provided the necessary classes to prepare me for my future experience in college. Most educators seem to care about the students learning and are passionate about what they teach. The environment of the schools in Hawaii are highly diverse and provide a laid back feeling. Some facilities in my schools seemed outdated, but they were still functional. Overall, I feel that the Hawaii Department of Education provides great opportunities for students to become successful all while being in the center of paradise.
Review Hawaii Department of Education
Awesome Department! I am sure other people feel the same. Very resourceful, unlike many other departments in the country. Well done.
My experience of going to school in Hawaii was plain and simply just average. The education was standard learning, which isn't very difficult because the curriculum here is very very low, but that's not what makes the schools bad. What makes the schools bad are the teachers who are obviously just there to get a paycheck and go home, and the students who are disrespectful and get away with it, and the absurd amounts of homework we're being forced to complete when what we all learned as seniors in high school, the rest of the United States learned in the 8th grade. Despite all the bad, I can still always find good. Once in a blue moon, you find a teacher who truly cares about their students, and you find a classroom full of students who truly care about their teacher. It's rare, but I've seen it with my own eyes.?
