I really enjoy the environment. Most of the teachers are very understanding and take the time or are open to knowing the students individually. I have made great friendships with students in all grades and have made good relationships with my most of teachers. The school is also full of enthusiastic athletes, due to this many students are full of school spirit and it is easy to work with most people. There are however, some negatives; the bathrooms aren't as clean as I'd like and sometimes there are no doors or toilet paper/soap. In addition to that, some parts of buildings are not the best. It's not revolting, some walls could just be scrubbed or some places could be swept. Also, it's common for there to be a fight most days. The teachers and security do their best to fix the issue, but some kids get very violent. Most people are used to it, but it's sad that it's become part of normalcy.

My experience was great with Kapolei High School. I hope to see it thrive as the school gets older and more clubs. The school has a lot of diverse clubs to offer like community service clubs, environment clubs, a gaming club, and more. The teachers there are very helpful and will always be ready to help you when you are there. They try to create a community about being one team. The motto is caring, dignity, and integrity. The football there is getting better each year, our soccer team went to the OIA championship this year. The school is a bit young however, which means some places have bit better academics than our school. However, due to this our facility is a lot cleaner and newer than other schools. The administration works hard to keep everyone safe, and can always be seen interacting with students. They are very student-friendly and always ready to help. There are a very diverse amount of people at our school. There are asians, Hawaiians, Americans, and African-Americans.
Attending Kapolei High School has been an eye-opening experience. The school has major diversity after all Hawaii is one giant melting pot. Because of this, moving to Kapolei High School wasn't hard. The students and teachers are friendly and it was surprisingly quite quick to find a group of people that would be there for me for the rest of the school years to come. Though education in Hawaii isn't the greatest and we are looked down upon here sometimes it honestly is an amazing experience. Alongside friendliness, the school has a wide variety of clubs and classes for you to select from regular classes to AP and even duo-credit. Something I would like to see change at Kapolei High School would be the bathrooms. The restrooms in almost every building lack doors that lock, toilet paper, and soap. It's to the point where some students bring their own soap and toilet paper to school. But overall Kapolei High School has been good to me.
