Hawaii Department of Education Reviews

Hawaii Department of Education for the most part is great. But I feel that the education they offer may not be enough to get us ready for the real world. We should have a life skills class that talks about motivation, self achievement, setting goals and conquering them, etc. Rather than giving us tests and quizzes and expecting that to determine what kind of person you are or where you'll end up in life. When kids learn positive and relatable material in school, it makes them eager and motivated to come to school and I felt that our department of education had to except the fact that in order to see these kids achieve and excel in life, then the D.O.E needs to fit the kids needs.

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 Some facilities in my schools seemed outdated, but they were still functional.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.
Awesome Department! I am sure other people feel the same. Very resourceful, unlike many other departments in the country. Well done.
