I loved it at moanalua! The academics prepare you for college and we have more than 3 counselors to help the students with any issues in school or at home and they are also in contact with the parents as well. Also, we have a college and career counselor to help us with picking colleges or jobs and they help with scholarships as well. The students get along well with each other and the school spirit is amazing every week. The sports here at Moanalua is very good, we have a variety of sports and the sports teams are able to win and receive state championships as well as our media and broadcast team. Our language program of different languages courses is one of the top programs in the country and the students are able to travel internationally to learn and explore more about different countries.
