Hawaii Technology Academy Public Charter School Reviews

Hawaii Technology is a school of excellence, it allows students to have a schedule that is very similar to a college experience. Students meet twice a week physically in the school, with one virtual learning day, and two individual work days. This type of schooling gives more freedom to move at an individual pace and get plenty of help and support from teachers when needed. I haven't had a single teacher that's given me problems or made obstacles difficult for me, this is reflective of the enriched environment in which HTA maintains. I highly recommend this school for athletes who would like to be able to endeavor more in independent training. This school has a variety of resources and everyone there truly cares about you and your learning!

In my experience, the teachers are great and truly show that they care about your academics. The Schedule is great(high school only two days a week required). There are many opportunities to receive extra help and retake assignments for a better grade. Sports are played for your district high school. There are many clubs and National Honor Society. The courses can be considered tough because of the online aspects and the workload (one year of classes in one semester) but, if you stay on track with your work and don't fall behind, you would do fine. In my opinion, HTA has many aspects similar to college and is a great FREE college prep like school.
I attended other schools before Hawaii
Tech. I found this one to be the most focused on preparing students for college, and teaching kids to be driven and ambitious in education. I believe, without attending here, I may not have enjoyed school, or graduated. I give this school an A+ for academics, an A+ for great teachers and staff, and I would recommend this school to any parent who may consider it for their own children.

Before I attended Hawaii Tech, I struggled with regular public schools, and all the cliche situations you hear about in schools. Once I transferred, I remember feeling more relaxed, and more confident. this school helped me get ready for college, and I am now enrolled to become a Radiology Tech.
