Kaimuki High School Reviews

My experience in Kaimuki High school will forever be unforgettable, despite it being populated with an estimation of seven hundred students. This makes it much easier to connect with other students. Not only that, but for the under appreciated teachers to pay their attention to every individual and help them by one and one constructive criticism with their work. Nothing to be ashamed of, they want nothing more than to see their students achieve their goals. The school is underestimated by the capability of students who wants nothing more than to prove others with their strength in academics and athleticism as well. As for the changes, I want others to give this school a chance by attending here to see for themselves.

Kaimuki is one of a kind school. The most noticeable thing of Kaimuki is the pride of being a Kaimuki Bulldog.

The establishment is one of the only academy-based schools in Hawaii. The system offers students more specific studies for their future careers through the three academies; STEAM, Entertainment, and Hospitality/Culinary.

The School also has one of the most colorful campuses in Hawaii. At most corners, you will see a vibrant and a meaningful mural that invites you to just stare at the work and wonder of all the vivid thoughts that develops from the murals.
My experience was amazing because they put your passion first. Your passion determined which academy in that school you are put in. My academy was entertainment because I loved to sing, dance and take videos of my classmates, family and friends. I wish our academy still existed it was so much fun and it made you feel like you were welcome to anything you wanted in entertainment industry. I have gained the knowledge and skills.
