Kalani offers programs promoting academic and career achievements, which include the CTE (Career & Technical Education) pathway department, the STEM (Science Technology Engineering Math) program department, the Arts program, and the Language department. In the STEM program, I have participated in several district and state science fairs. I also represented the school in the International Japan Super Science Fair which was hosted by Ritsumeikan High school. For the arts program, I have been involved with the school symphony orchestra and music classes. Besides these music classes, I also took ceramic classes and directed arts studies. For the Language department, I took 2 years of chinese and was involved in the many activities hosted by this program. As for sports, the school has all the essential athletic teams and is equipped with a tennis court, a pool, a gym, and a track field. For team sports, I was cross country team captain and involved in track and field.

Kalani High School has a great education system and great support systems for students. Counselors at this school are very good and help with student's problems and school issues. Counselors have helped me with school schedule issues, personal projects, and overall support for my future. On the other hand, some teachers aren't as great. Certain teachers have below-average teaching qualities including showing how to do certain things without explanation. The facilities aren't very great because the school's athletics areas are not quite up to date and could be better. The school also doesn't have air conditioning which can be difficult for students to focus.
Education is what you make of it. I believe Kalani High School offers excellent opportunities overall. They offer duel credit, running start, early college, and AP courses to give their students a head start in their path to their future. Most teachers are willing to put in extra time with students if they are struggling. As for clubs and sports, Kalani high school offers a multitude of choices. Our sports teams really try their best. Some of the top ranking sports from our school include the swim team, basketball team, and volleyball team. Most clubs at our school meet once every other week and participate in activities outside of school. As for our student body, there are always accepting groups of friends you can form friendships with.
