Kahuku High School, offers us students pathways and other extra classes to take to help find our passion, and helps us to practice hands on activities we could benefit later in the future. For example I am currently enrolled in the last stage of our Health Core Pathway which offers me great hands on experiences, brings in variety of speakers to come in and touch bases of the different types of work on the medical field, and also has us attend these workshops that help us students further our passion in our studying. These pathways are classes that help us study what we want to be in the future, that no other class can touch bases on. What I would like to see change in my school, is to have more classes like this of other careers enrolled for future driven kids. It would really be beneficial for them!

In Kahuku High School, everyone is accepting, something I am really glad about. In my school, there will always be someone to have your back and help you no matter what. We are always helping one another and making sure no one is left behind, everyone is kind and obliging. The teachers are also very friendly and will make a strong relationship with their students, making sure that we are on track and have what we need to succeed. The counselors and administrators are our safe haven, people we can talk to when we have problems with anything. This school is wonderful, I have been going to this school for 5 years and it was really fun and memorable!
I absolutely loved my experience at Kahuku High School. I transferred from Kamehameha High School because I wanted a new experience in my hometown. Honestly, I learned so much more in this small and poor little school than I did in one of the richest private schools in the nation. It all had to do with teachers. My AP and Honors teachers at Kamehameha were fine, but my AP teachers at Kahuku pushed me and made me believe that I was smart and could be anything. I was challenged mentally and got to participate in everything I wanted to. Here it didn't matter if you were a jock or a surfer dude or anything like that. All that mattered were that you wanted to learn more and then the (AP) teachers pushed you to achieve your goals and more. Get the right teachers and you'll soar!
