Waihee Elementary School Ratings & Reviews
I am extremely pleased with the staff. Everyone is very friendly and attentive to the individual needs of the students
This is a public school that offers a quint, private atmosphere in a very clean, quiet, nature setting! A general friendly/family atmosphere is what I have experienced so far! Teachers and staff take the time to be courteous to me and this makes me feel that my child is being treat with care and love! Above all, I look for signs from my child; thus far she has displayed enthusiasm and excitement about going to school! She has never made any complains about anything about this school and I like this; after all she is the number one critique! I know that no one system is fault-proof but based on these initial impressions we are happy with this school Morning traffic at drop off time bottle necks for about five to ten minutes due to the school's location by to the main road. The school can definitely use some funding to perhaps add some space to their land to alleviate this problem. Overall, a FIVE STAR SCHOOL! (my observation)!
Bad experience with the leader of this school. The programs do not challenge the students with cheat sheets given to students. The school is academically sanctioned.
Poor School. Please re-consider for the benefit of your children. My son is doing much better in Kihei now. At Waihee they use cheat sheets in their students folder for math. Why not use a calculator. My son has learned so much more since making the transfer. I am thankful to be away from this educationally-sanctioned school. Their grades are horrific. Native Hawaiian kids deserve better. Get a new leader for this school. It sounds like I'm not the only one tooting this horn.
I would strongly recommend another school for you child. The principal is extremely arrogant. She is non-responsive and does not serve in the best interest of the children. My best advice is to try another school. Please note - the school has not met low academic standards for 3 years running and is currently academically sanctioned by the Hawaii School Board. Hawaiian children deserve more that sub-standard education. Let's get this principal out and start anew with a better plan to education our Hawaiian Keiki.
