As a student, I believe that Kamehameha Schools provides all the resources to succeed. As a Native Hawaiian, Kamehameha Schools has shaped my overall character of being a Hawaiian and encourages me to perpetuate my Hawaiian culture. The environment at Kamehameha Schools is very safe, many students leave belongings unattended and no one steals their things. I am a boarder at Kamehameha Schools which means I eat there breakfast, lunch and dinner. Although we are served chicken very often, we have a daily salad bar, saimin bar, and fruits. I wish to change the boarding program. I've struggled these past 3 years, almost 4 with my dorm advisors and the rules boarders have to follow. A boarders' schedule is very structured and does not allow for much free time. I feel as high school students, seniors especially we should be gradually starting to make choices for ourselves and start to become more independent. Overall it is a wonderful school with amazing and highly competent teachers.
Kamehameha Schools gives so many resources that are accessible to all students, making it easy to pave your path as you move from high school into college. There's also a lot of opportunities available to students based on their interests, so it's important to build good relationships with your teachers and counselors. The cultural aspect is something unique here, as the school hosts annual events centered around Hawaiian culture such as Ho‘olaulea and Song Contest.
