I attended Noelani from 2003 to 2007, 2nd through 5th grade. It was awful! We learned a lot academically, but were taught to conform, not ask questions, and fear failure. Kids, including kids with special needs, were overtly bullied and teachers did nothing about it. Teachers would shame kids in front of everyone for not getting top grades or for not succeeding at dance or singing performances until they cried. We had hours of homework every day at a young age and it gave me stress dreams. I hated Noelani so much every day. It was the worst school I ever went to. It's pretty sick that they were the "blue ribbon school." I hope this school has changed since then!
