Henry Perrine Baldwin High School is a large school with a lot of heart. Students frequently participate in spirit events and sporting events, especially football, are always a joy to watch. It's always full of energy from the students and teachers. As for the teachers, many are passionate and enjoy working with students, especially science teachers.

Academically, it isn't the strongest school, and lacks many options for AP classes, but a Running Start partnership with the nearby community college helps alleviate that issue somewhat. The faculties are also a bit old, with many classrooms lacking air conditioning and computers shared among numerous classes.

Overall, Baldwin is a school with a lot of spirit, albeit with some lacking education (though passionate teachers). For a public school on Maui, it's a good choice.

Very welcoming students if you are new to HP Baldwin school. Most of the teachers are very understanding and will work with student if there is a challenge that difficult to understand within the lesson. The school itself is very diverse with all different cultures and religions, but similar values that are uphold within the school. The school campus is well kept by custodians and is a safe environment for staff, students, and family by police and security. The two star deduction is that the school could work on expanding the career pathway classes and AP classes. There is about only two or three different classes for each career pathway. Very minimal food when given lunch, for example three pieces of chicken stripes and a scope of brown rice with a choice of milk. All in all get campus but education and food could be better.
At Baldwin High School, the administration leading the school is crucial to my rating. The administration neglects concerns brought from parents, students, and community members alike. They show no mercy for anything beyond their outdated doctrine of "success."

Alongside poor leadership, school facilities need serious attention. A recent $3 million grant was used to redo the school parking lot. The new design has drastically reduced the student parking area, to the point that many students must park off-campus and walk more than 10 minutes. The grant was not used to provide air conditioning to any classrooms, where it can feel warmer than 90 degrees thanks to high humidity. Many believe this would have been a more suitable use of resources.

Students and Teachers want to see the school positively impacting all of Maui's communities. Many seek a change of leadership to allow the student body to have a better fit with their upcoming generational beliefs and values.
