Island school is a college-prep school that gives students all the resources they need to not only get into their preferred colleges, but strive for achievement in their academics. Although Island school offers the highest education courses island-wide, it is only a fraction of what the school has to offer. It gives students a sense of belonging as students are able to connect with likewise peers. Island School allows students to participate in extracurricular activities such as theatre, arts, music, technology and sports. This School is more of a family and community than a standard high school.
Teachers and staff are smart, kind people, and it is clear that they want their students to succeed in their future.
Island School is definitely your best choice for a private school on Kauai. The teachers are dedicated and friendly; it’s a pretty chill place for the students, and there’s definitely the ability to get a good education there.
The teachers at Island School create a safe environment for my children. The curriculum is challenging and has prepared my son to be independent in college. I am very please with the education my children receive.
Island school offers a close nit environment that allows students the opportunity to know their teachers and mentors. Island school is also a college prep school that will give students the resources to grow figure out their interests and passions.
Really nice school. The teachers are so caring and considerate, they do their best to guide students in daily life.
Excellent school. High expectations. Dedicated, loving, professional teachers. Hardworking, respectful students.
This is a fantastic college-prep school, not just for Hawaii, but comparable to schools on the mainland.
Island school prepares kids for college, they make you work, it gets hard. It is easily the best school on the island and the teachers are always there to help the students. There are classes dedicated to just getting you into college. If a student wants to go to college, island school is the place to be.
Very strong academic school. The art, chorus and mock trial program are top notch programs in the state. SAT and AP scores are very impressive. Athletics are improving. My children had a very positive experience.
This is an excellent school. Teachers care about my children's well being and challenge them academically. The Arts are very strong and the athletics keep getting stronger.
They need to take away the dress code because it is stupid and takes away all of our individuality and character. Obviously no one is going to wear things like booty shorts to school, it's stupid that we can't just wear regular clothes.
Academically this is a wonderful school. The kids are prepared for college. The teachers and administrators care about our kids. I couldn't ask for a better school for my children.
sucks. this school is way too stressful, fosters no creative thinking, and piles on an immense workload onto each student starting in middle school. many of the teachers give no regard to the students, and the overall atmosphere is that of stress, anxiety, and depression. the students have no school pride and hate the school, the teachers are unenthusiastic about their jobs, and the faculty does nothing to fix any of the many problems here. two big thumbs down- as a student i can say with confidence that this school has made my high school experience truly horrible.
Being a student here for over 10 years, there's no doubt I absolutely enjoyed my life here. The teachers are clearly well-qualified to teach their subjects, the community is thriving and incredibly supportive, and the overall atmosphere is just nice. That being said, the disciplinary aspect of Island School could be improved.
I have two children at Island School and we are very happy with the quality of education our kids receive. Academics are the best and they provide a caring and loving environment as well.
Best private school on Kauai hands down. The teachers genuinely care about the students' success and work to help them achieve all they can. I have 2 kids who attend here and both get an excellent education. They don't have a lot of resources, they don't have a huge pot of money, but they make the best of what they have.
