Island Pacific Academy Reviews

Administration is awful in the secondary building. They try, but they're not connected to the rest of the school so some of the decisions they've made could have been more effective if they had talked to the community more.

The teachers and students are amazing, but not many teachers stay so it's hard for the school to work out the kinks in courses. It also means some information (especially concerning colleges) slips through the cracks when a past teacher assumes a future teacher will go over it, and a future teacher assumes the class already knows. Thankfully, the teachers are wonderful and always willing to spend extra time answering questions or just talking.

Overall, if there's anything I'll miss about IPA, it's the community. It's impossible to walk down the hall and someone not smile at you, just as it is unlikely you will ever find yourself alone when you need help.

Island Pacific Academy is a private school located in Kapolei, Hawai'i. I feel that IPA has a very rigorous education system. For instance, it is an International Baccalaureate (IB), school. In my opinion, the system is flawed and it doesn't allow for a lot of students to reach their full academic potential. I would recommend more AP classes for upper students to receive college credit, other than just the IB courses. They don't have a lot of facilities compared to other private schools on the island as well. However, the people that make up the school is what sets it a part from others. The students and faculty really do care and there is a real sense of "family" when you go there. I have made life long friends and we have a bond that is unbreakable. This is what makes IPA so special. The people genuinely care for you and will go the extra mile to help you succeed.
I like that it was easy for me to make new friends this past year at Island Pacific Academy; I moved from Maryland to Hawaii last summer and missed all of my friends in Manchester, Maryland. When I got to Island Pacific Academy the kids were outgoing and welcoming. I also participated in sports for the first time to include track, volleyball, and basketball. Although I was not the best player it was still enjoyable because of the friends I made along the way. My teachers are friendly and always willing to help me if I have any questions or need additional help with assignments.
