Waialua High & Intermediate School Reviews

Waialua is by far one of the safest and most welcoming schools in the state. All the students are friendly towards others and there are rarely ever fights. It is a great school to send your child to if you want them to stay involved with one of the many student-organized clubs, award-winning band and robotics programs, or highly inclusive sports. However, Waialua's academic programs are not very advanced and there are few A.P. classes or early college courses available to students. Regardless, mostly all teachers here are extremely kind and have an apparent care for their students.

Teachers care about students well being and would provide the learning that you need. The school cares about enforcing anti bullying and attendance on campus. Faculty staff will provide excellent service. Safety in this school is admirable as they have guards walking around campus to provide security for students and help if needed. Guards will also pick you up in a golf cart from class if you report to your teacher that you are unwell and needed to go to the nurses office. The school is overall amazing.
Waialua High and Intermediate School has been an amazing school to me. I was in the 7th grade when I started to attend the school. I had no friends so I was so scared for the first day of school. But when I got there, I was so surprised! Everyone was extremely nice! Definitely not what I was expecting because of stories I'be heard about how middle school/high school is supposed to be like. I am so happy I attend Waialua High and Intermediate and will definitely be sad when I graduate. It's such a living community, everyone is family at Waialua.
