Leilehua high school is the best high school I've ever attended. The teachers genuinely strive to help you. They want you to succeed. I'm a white, blond girl and I was accepted into the school amazingly. Military families sometimes are worried about the diversity and being the minority, but leilehua is the most friendly and open school out of the 6 I've attended. The transition center helps you get adapted and learn about the school, and they give you a chance to meet friends. Great school!

Leilehua High School is the best public high school in the island of Oahu. The faculty, staff, and overall atmosphere make it such a prestigious high school. Not to mention the special programs and athletics we have to offer. The school invests in the SMARTS and Naviance programs to offer as much help to us, the students. The SMARTS program is a free tutoring opportunity where teachers of all the major subjects help us, the students, with any sort of problem we may face. The Naviance program is an online college helper that has everything about the colleges you are interested in. The College and Career Center, and our counselors keep track of our interests through Naviance. The overall atmosphere at Leilehua High School is very diverse. Schofield Barracks is located very near Leilehua, so we have kids from different ethnicities and backgrounds come together. From my freshmen year, all the way to my senior year, there is always a positive vibe flowing through the campus.
Leilehua high school has a very open and welcoming enviornment. We have amazing teachers and staff who really care about your well being. Wether it is emotionally, physically, and most importantly mentally. Being a student at Leilehua High is an amazing experience. I've got to meet so many other students by being involved with homecoming activities and sports. We have so many clubs and activities here at Leilehua. We have Future Farmers of America, Best Buddies, Inspire Club, Interact club, STEM and Math club, FFCLA, LASEC, hiking club, Leo club, Key club, Los Amigos, Na Kayoshikai, and so much more. Leilehua also has a transition center that welcomes new students which is so important since Schofield Army base is in the area. Majority of Leilehua is so accepting of other individuals' religion, ethnicity, sexual/gender identity, etc. Overall, Leilehua is an great school to attend and I wouldn't want to attend anywhere else.
