I personally think Leilehua is a great school. There are a variety of electives to choose from. Not only are there a variety of electives, there's also so many sports and clubs included that there is a high chance you might find something you're interested in! Since we're in the topic of sports, I'd like to gladly mention I was a part of the jv soccer team. This team taught me what a real team is. My teammates were so supportive of each other and demonstrated great sportsmanship. They showed me that it isn't about winning all the time. As long as you have fun and try your best, that's all that really matters. Without a doubt, I'd willingly participate to be a part of the Leilehua soccer team again. The teachers are also very friendly and the maturity of the students here is amazing. I can walk in the hallways with comfort without having to worry about getting into some kind of drama. I'd say Leilehua is a place I'd call home!

Leilehua High School is a very good public school to attend. This school is very diverse and culture-rich. The administration as well as the teachers here are very helpful. Students here are very friendly given the diversity of the school population which I find very interesting. Classes here are very good as well. There is no shortage of extra-curricular which is great. . Facilities and resources are often limited but adequate. The CCC is exceptional (go check it out everyday!). The counseling offices are there for questions and student concerns. Can't forget about the library managed by the humble librarians. Sports are very competitive and great if you are looking for a school to join sports. We also have our very own mule named Bingo! (check it out on Ag building). All-in-all, Leilehua High School is an extraordinary place for students like me to attain knowledge and achieve a personal growth in a culture-rich and a friendly ecosystem. Go Mules!
This school is very ethnically diverse. Additionally, there are a variety of activities and clubs for students to join. The teachers genuinely care about their students. Hawaii has a very low budget, however, and it shows in the public school system's academic programs. I can't say I learned a whole lot at this school (academically), but I sure learned social skills!
