Music department and Varsity Tennis program are awesome! I've been in the music department for the past 4 years and I've enjoyed every minute of it. I've enjoyed the wonderful people I have met and the supportive staff. Mr.Seta is one of the most knowledgeable people you will ever meet who will provide you with great music and life lessons. Varsity Tennis has made me into a better person by opening myself up and pushing my physical and emotional limits. Tryouts are so difficult. Running up hills, running stairs, running laps. Just RUNNING, RUNNING, RUNNING! We run more than track at this point! haha. But, all this is totally worth it with the fun times you have with a sleepover at a Waikiki hotel, movie night, and playing games and sports at gym night. Join Moanalua High School and take advantage of what it has to offer if you can! I loved it!

Moanalua High School is located in Honolulu, Hawaii. It can can very humid here so the school is outside, meaning there are no hallway walls. This is super fun and unique, but went it rains you might end up in class wet! Since Hawaii is a melting pot our school is very diverse, resulting in everyone getting along. One thing in particular that Moanalua is good for is the range of sports. We have water polo, air rifle, soft tennis, paddling and more! The only downside is sometimes we have too many students which means classes have to be held in tight portable. Also the construction is going on 24/7, but all that means is our school is improving.
Moanalua High School is great school. When I tell someone that I attend Moanalua, it's always the same reaction: Oh wow! Good School. And that, I agree with. I believe that Moanalua offers a variety of enjoyable, yet rigorous courses on all levels for the different types of students. Teachers, admin, health aides, clerks, and all staff are friendly, welcoming, and helpful.
