Keaau High School Reviews

The accommodations are quite new and fairly nice. However the system in which the teachers and administrators work in are awful. Students are often time just shoved on to the easiest path to graduation without much aim for college education. Students sometimes suffer due to mis-matched teachers. This sometimes meant that students had to overbear themselves not only with tons of ‘borrowed’ worksheets but also with the responsibility of teaching themselves. Teachers fail to encourage students to engage more actively resulting in most classes becoming stale and mindless. The athletics division seems to be the focus of administrative funding as many classes failed to have enough textbooks for all of its students. In conclusion, Keaau High-school is okay in terms of buildings and ac units, however in terms of actual teaching and engaging with its students, Keaau suffers tremendously.

Keaau High School, although it was a school placed on a small island, it had made a big impact on my life. 4 years at that school, I have grown and enjoyed life to the fullest, I have met amazing teacher and students who became as close to me like family. This school has also provided me with the opportunity to be outgoing by going and operating events and student body government. am forever grateful to be alumni at Keaau High School. GO COUGARS!
Most teachers don’t implement lessons and curriculums to thoroughly prepare students for college — some do the bare minimum and make it seem like they are teaching, when in reality, they aren’t. There is a lack of school spirit and very few assemblies and school events. Almost all the students at the school don’t have the motivation to learn and put little to no effort into their schoolwork. There is a minimal selection of clubs to join, and very few students join any club for that matter. Overall, this school is very lacking and the administration isn’t putting in enough effort to prepare their students for the real world and college.
