Hawaii Academy of Arts and Science has been an amazing school for me. I am so grateful that I have been able to have been a part of the HAAS community for almost 9 years now! HAAS has an amazing learning and social atmosphere. The teachers really take time to make sure that you have the tools to succeed and are always available to help if you are having trouble. I love my relationships with my teachers; they all know what my goals are and they are so supportive and helpful. I recommend Hawaii Academy of Arts and Science to everyone I know. It is truly a terrific school and it has so much to offer.

Hawaii Academy of Arts & Science, aka HAAS, is such a great school! The teachers always help to success with your classes, the administration is so helpful and the whole student body is a diverse amount of inspiring individuals. While the school is small, the budget isn't the greatest and the wifi is okay; the ups ultimately outnumber the downs.
I loved every day at HAAS. The teachers really care about you and it feels like one big family. HAAS is like no other school I've ever attended. One thing that is lacking, is the academics. It is kind of easy and a lot of students don't take it serious enough.
