Down to earth students, faculty and staff members. Great community and environment! Teachers were always very helpful and determined to lead us on the right path for graduation readiness and prep for college. Students were very connected and had varieties of cultures around the school which taught me to work well with every student.. we always met coming and going military students and transfers from around the wrold ! This school felt like home

Leilehua High School is located in an amazing community. There are various amounts of clubs and activities that are offered at the school. There are many teachers and staff around campus that are more than willing to help students with whatever they may need help or assistance with. My student peers are also very kind and helpful, we respect each and everyone. One thing I would like to see a change in would have to be student involvement in the school. There isn't as many students participating in certain things. I would like to see students getting out of their comfort zone to share their strong qualities and skills being put to use for the school. The more student involvement, the more opinions and ideas we have to improve the school as a whole. If we are able to do this, then we will be able to grow stronger as a school and improve the quality of everything around us.
Leilehua has been with my family three generations. My grandparents graduated from Leilehua, my mom graduated from Leilehua, and now I am graduating from Leilehua. Leilehua to me means connection because I connect with family, friends, and my whole community. The only thing that I would change is that Leilehua is a high school that doesnʻt get recognized as well as other schools because people think that our school is "lame" and "old" but Leilehua has really made a great impacted on not only mine but the whole communities lives.
