I like that we are very prideful in what we do, Win or Lose! The people there are all for you and hope you become a honest, loyal and contributing member of society. The best thing about it was that I got to pick the classes that made the most sense with my skill set. Who else can say that they would do it all again and not change a single thing!

So far, I'm a freshman at Keaau, but I'm already enjoying my education experience here. The teachers are really easy to talk to and can usually help you if something's wrong or you don't understand. There are plenty of field trip and class opportunties for all grades too. I will say, they focus a lot on sports, but they have good standards for the athletes. I am currently a JV cheerleader on the sideline cheer squad, and it's tons of fun! I am also in the HOSA Club and went to a state competition on Oahu. Being at this school has given me many great opportunities, and I encourage future students to be involved and have fun, because the year goes by pretty darn fast! We're only 4 or 5 weeks away from the end!
As a student of Keaau High School, It was quite the adventure. The diversity of cultures there and the continuous support with LGBTQ+ has been on campus. I feel that they could have done a better job with supplying us healthy but eye pleasing meals. The sports need more support when it comes to more school spirit. The sports really struggled in motivation from the school which I felt could have used some more hard work. Also, My school didn't quite prep me for college. I feel like there was more they could have taught me that I have to now teach myself.
