King Kekaulike is a decent school with amazing teachers. Most teachers were compassionate and showed that they cared for me. Or maybe I was just lucky enough to get the good ones. The school itself is bursting with many sports and clubs. It offers honors and AP classes. Along with many fun electives like acting, band, dance, and very many art classes. They also offer four different language classes. I wouldn't say King Kekaulike is a horrible school, but I also wouldn't say it's the best school.

My experience so far has been great! It's the type of situation where they say "it is what you make of it." The school has definitely improved in terms of sports and academics over the past few years. There have been a few principles coming in and out this past year which was difficult but the new principle is good!
It overall was a really fun high school experience & most of the teachers are great! The pep rallies are so much fun and the teachers often get involved. The one thing that really needs improving is the food. It is not very healthy and the servings are pretty small.
