Kamehameha Schools Hawai'i Campus Reviews

I began school at Kamehameha Schools Hawaiʻi in the sixth grade. It was quite hard for me to transition to a private school by having to adhere to the dress code and many rules they enforced. Over the years I learned to adapt. The diversity and talent the students and staff have really encouraged me to break out of my shell. This school has given me the chance to explore my Hawaiian heritage side and really be able to mold myself into who I want to be in the future. I have learned so much about myself and this school has provided me with many resources such as laptops, clean spaces, electricity, uniforms, counseling, good food, encouragement, and positive energy. I know that I wouldn't be where I am right now, striving to go further, if I didn't attend this institution.

I was lucky enough to be accepted into Kamehameha Schools for my high school career and I can say that it has been nothing short of amazing. The teachers, academics, facilities, students, resources, and much more has made my experience both successful and fun. When people think of Kamehameha schools, they believe that we are fortunate just because of our campus, facilities, and resources. However, there is much more to our school than just that. Every teacher puts there all into each and every student they have to ensure that they are prepared, safe, and successful. Over the years, I have been able to create so many bonds with amazing students and teachers who have helped me become the person I am today. Although there are so many great things about this campus, I would like to see more community service and involvement within our school. I believe that since we are so fortunate and that we are a Hawaiian school, it would be amazing to give thanks to our community in any way possible.
Kamehameha Schools is a school that allows you to go far in your education with more opportunities than most schools can offer. They are involved in so many aspects of the community thanks to the hard work of the founders and aliʻi (chiefs/chiefesses) of the islands. It is a school for Hawaiians. On this campus, teachers and staff have been working hard to bring forth more aspects of the native Hawaiian culture, language, and traditions. But as Kamehameha Schools was initially a military school, specific rules or traditions limit the ability of the students to be fully immersed in the ways of their native peoples' culture, language, and traditions. In these ways, the school lacks proper criteria to be a Hawaiian school and can work to improve that. The rigid workload on each student may be suitable but the well-roundedness of the students can be enhanced with more implementation of their Hawaiian identity.
