Hawaii Department of Education Reviews

10 reviews
All Categories
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.?

I like the diversity in learning styles that are seen amoung all of the school. However, as a senior something I would like to see improved is the college readiness aspetct of things. While yes there are many members of staff and faculty that do there best to support us. I just think that college should be brought up as early as freshmen year in order to help those who know they are college bond follow the right process and help the ones who may or may not be on the fence on whether or not they want to go to college.
I've always appreciated how the Hawaii Department of Education was adaptive of each students set of skills but would have standards that would help improve their critical thinking. If I were to change one thing, I would like to have less standards to meet and to combine some of them so that we are able to learn more easily and smoothly rather than rush a whole class to learn multiple standards in a short period of time.
