Waiakea High School Ratings & Reviews

January 01, 2015 Submitted by a parent
I am very discouraged about this school. If the teachers decide that they do not like a student then they won't pass the student. Even if the student is really smart. Not a good way to go about teaching.

I graduated very well-prepared for college at a selective liberal arts college on the mainland. The teachers were very supportive and dedicated. Downside - lots of slackers and druggies, and some major cliques. But once you find your groove/niche, it's easy to focus on that and stay away from that nonsense.

2 years for my younger granddaughter in this school and we pulled her out due to the horrible teachers at this school. While there are few teachers that do good, if your child gets stuck with a bad teacher for a certain course, it is quite difficult to get them with a good teacher. The counselors, or at least one that I have dealt with, seems to have little interest in the students. Most schools on the island are not so great, so we settled on online school which is a much better choice than any public school here. The teachers don't teach in a way that the students can understand and don't try to help you understand.

I had three kids graduate from Waiakea High, all of whom were extremely different, and I do feel the majority of the teachers made a effort equally with all of them. I would not have sent them anywhere else and if I had not lived in the district, would have found a way to get them there. They were taught to make their way in a world where no one is accountable for their actions but themselves. Consequences were real and immediate. My son and his friends in the AP classes were challenged and provided opportunities for additional enrichment. My kids were provided a well-rounded education that private schools gcannot provide.

I am proud to write this review for Waiakea High School. My child was well prepared for college. She thought some of her classes at Waiakea were actually more rigorous. We appreciate the well rounded education she received at Waiakea. As a student in the Health and Fitness Academy, she was exposed to a number of careers in the health profession. It really helped her to decide the University and major she eventually chose.
