I wish to state that it is not the school that is failing the kids, it is the education they are receiving. The No Child Left Behind is in no way helping these kids. I have a child in the school and have watched him pass classes that in no way he should have. You bring it up to the teachers and they ...  Read more

Hey I agree with the latest entry. There are many successful graduates of Waianae High School. Success is based on how hard you are willing to work at it and how motivated you are. I have family members who graduated from private school, not doing much now and others who graduated from WHS and are ...  Read more
