12 Parent Reviews for Keaau High School

This school is a waste of time. Most teachers teach a subject as they are learning it. Like a band teacher or a permanent general substitute teaching advanced math. I was forced to learn Hawaiian (from a Hawaiian teacher) for a class on American history! The staff isn't helpful and the guidance counselors ...  Read more

KHS has come a while from being the dilapidated-educational system it was. Many, many of my peers do NOT have any motivation but luckily a few of my teachers do. Instead of choosing to go with the flow the other kids had set up, they choose to enforce learning. Not all of the teachers by far are the ...  Read more

Keeau High School is in the midst of a supportive community, but lacks the cooperation needed between the faculty and parents. Some experiences as a parent have left much to be desired, and has caused concern on my part. My recently graduated daughter is severely lacking in the skills needed in college, ...  Read more

My child is currently a freshmen at Keaau High and I must say that so far her experience has been positive. This was the first year for the freshman academy program. I can attest that I feel as a parent it has supported her education and has allowed her to be successful. The academy teachers were ...  Read more

Keaau had and still has the potential to be a great school. It's had a very rocky start due to poor administrative leadership, nepotism, favoritism, and lack of administrtive support toward the faculty. Things have been very bad at Keaau but I still believe the faculty is excellent and will demonstrate ...  Read more

While it's true that there are some very good oportunities at this school, as well as outstanding teachers, I'd like to remind us of the 4% of students meeting the math standards. This can be blamed on poor student quality, teacher quality, or both. There isnt one student in my math class who I would ...  Read more

I recently decided to drop out of this school and get my GED because of the extremely poor quality of this school. I could not handle putting so much effort into not learning. It is one thing to not put any effort into school and drop out, but it is quite another to really put your heart into it and ...  Read more

As an alumnus of Keaau High school, I would have to say that it did not prepare me in the least for my college carrer. The school lacks authority and dicipline. I am majoring in mathematics, and from my first year in college, I can guarentee that I could better educate these kids than the teachers did ...  Read more
