Hawaii Technology Academy Public Charter School Reviews

Hawaii Technology Academy is a great public charter school. This particular school is very unique in the state of Hawai'i and it is very similar to college, so it's a great school to prep your high schoolers for college. Hawaii Technology Academy is unique in that its students do not attend school every single day like other public, private, and charter schools in Hawai'i. With their blended education learning system, students have set days to attend school. For example, high schoolers attend school on Tuesdays and Thursdays while elementary students attend school on Wednesdays. One thing that Hawaii Technology Academy can approve upon is the amount of space the school has. Hawaii Technology Academy is a growing school and their enrollment doubled at one point while I attended the school, so the space itself was hard to move and work around in.

While attending Hawaii Technology Academy, I've noticed there is an expectation to be independent which can be intimidating. But, a strength in this school is the care each staff member has for each student. Though the expectation of being independent is there, you are not entirely alone. Teachers and staff are welcome to any questions, or concerns and are open to talking with you about it. I've, personally, been very adamant that I must do everything on my own, but knowing I can reach out to my teachers for feedback or questions really made that intimidating aspect of working independently less scary. It also helps and trains you on working on your own and how to organize your days which is a useful trait. When communicating with my teachers- both, via in person or email- they helped clear up any confusions I had and were willing to talk with me further on the subject if I still had difficulty understanding. This school has a welcoming heart to it.
This was one of the best schools I had ever attended. Not only are the teachers there amazing at their jobs, but they honestly care about their students. They do everything that can to make sure you succeed. To top all of that off Hawaii Technology Academy is new and innovative. It pushes the boundaries of what schooling is. You get out in the world and you learn. HTA expands your horizons and your mind so much, to the point where even those adamantly against learning are happy to be in school. Another benefit of HTA is just how much it allowed me to grow as a person. I was able to explore who I was and what I wanted to do by actually doing things I was interested in. All while my teachers supported me without question.
