Kamehameha Schools has helped to shape me as a person through academic, emotional, physical, spiritual, and mental growth. The school presents many opportunities for students to learn in numerous ways. Every teacher at Kamehameha Schools has a different style of teaching, each of which allows for different styles of learning for the students. From classwork to lectures to outdoor lessons, classes at Kamehameha Schools aim to stimulate the minds of its children from a variety of perspectives. In addition, the school is more than accommodating to students in need of help whether it be that of financial or educational assistance. The school works to instill diligence and industriousness within its students. Most importantly, however, Kamehameha Schools encourage their students to interact with their home environment with the ultimate goal of giving back to the community from which they have emerged.

Students are given a lot of opportunities to get a head start on college credits with the AP classes offered. They teach students how to give back to the community through service learning activities. Along with Math, Science, and English classes, the arts are required through annual school-wide song contests. It is academically challenging and teaches college-level material so that the first few years upon entering university is easy. The school has many clubs and activites to offer. Besides football, basketball, soccer, baseball, and softball, there's also Paddling, golf, tennis, bowling, air-riflery, water polo, cross country, and track. Academically, the speech and debate team, mathleets, National Honors Society, and the Japanese National Honors Society. Also, the Cat and Dog huggers club, and the tree huggers club. In the arts, Theatre, Band/Marching band, Orchestra, Hula chant and dance, Hawaiian Ensemble, Photography, etc.
Kamehameha Schools is a great Hawaiian institution built in the foundation of Hawaiian morals and values. I enjoyed going there because of the great food, inspiring teachers, intriguing classes, extensive research and facilities, as well as the beautiful campus. This school is truly the best private school in the nation and I believe that whole heartedly. Although not everyone may be fortunate enough to go here I believe that his school shall never be forgotten. It's academics are top notch along with great athletics and extra curriculars. This schools influence of Hawaiian culture is much needed today in Hawaii and serves as a way to keep many Hawaiians rooted to their ancestors, which is vital for the survival of the Hawaiian race
