My daughter just completed 7th grade at Hilo Inter. She came from a high-achieving "distinguished" elementary school that put a lot of pressure on kids to pass the HSA testing. She is much happier at Hilo Inter. She is getting straight A's and she is recognized and appreciated by her teachers. Her ...  Read more

More than half the kids at this school are in ramp up classes. The school only seems to cater and help those in ramp up. However, children who are not in ramp up are not being challenged. My son is not in ramp up and has barely had any homework since the first day of school. He brought home his mid ...  Read more

If the student is a poor test taker or has some learning disabilities then they are given double english and math classes according to their scores. Middle ...  Read more

As of the 2005-2006 school year, Hilo Intermediate provides more than sufficient academic quality and extra-curricular activities. We've had two children go to this school, and can say that most of the teachers were genuinly concerned about their learning and did more than expected. Our children love ...  Read more

I'm not a parent, but a student. I think that the school needs more clubs. The school does not have activitys that cover everyone interests.The band is very good and some science teachers have made a club but over all there is little to do.

The academic program is okay. There is an excellent band instructor and program that teaches the kids how to play instruments well and helps the children understand dicipline and proper etiquette. The arts and sports program are also excellent. I think personally ther should be more extracurricular ...  Read more
