Excellent. A+. A little harder coursework than other high schools but with matched student outcomes.

Agree with the comment below. Don't expect much for support but overall we had alittle better experience. The choir teacher is so awesome and works her buns off. Had several other teachers we had great experiences with and others who were just short tempered and disinterested. They do put quite a bit of effort into college readiness and applying for college which is probably the thing they do best.

Kalani may score great on test scores, but that as about far as it goes. That does not come from teachers, but families with one child and tutors. There are many students there who work hard and are deserving of their success. If you are in need of help whether it is academic, personal, or other look elsewhere. Disorganization with a who do you know atmosphere. Cliques that just make you sick, unbelievable the way the females in this school behave. Almost feels like your'e living in a different country, very odd.

Kalani High School is an average school. There are great teachers that really help out the students and some that are not. In addition, the teachers have really bad favoritism that make students not learn that well. Also, the principal doesn't treat his students well. He has favoritism over the students and is not a friendly type of guy. For sports, they have AGAIN favoritism for that too! They don't pay attention to tennis and don't even come to the games to watch and take pictures which is horrible. They didn't give us new rackets/materials to play. The coach had to use his own money to cover it. Which I think is unfair because they didn't renew his contract so he is not the coach for Kalani anymore. In addition, they didn't even pay for our uniforms too. OH AND THE BATHROOM IS DISGUSTING SO THEY SHOULD PUT LITTLE TRASHCANS IN EACH STALL. Also, they should give more discipline and punish kids harder. SO THIS COULD STOP ALL THE BULLYING. ------- SUBMITTED BY A FORMER STUDENT

Former student of Kalani and i have to somewhat agree with some things people rated. There are some great teachers, but if there is no care behind the teaching, then ultimately the student does suffers. It's not just up to the teachers to teach. Its, also up to the students to want to learn. Ultimately, it is the teachers job to teach weather or not the students want to learn, but you do have agree or disagree that when the teachers come to work to do their job, its easy for them to loose sight when all of their efforts to the majority of the students are all for not, but teachers should realize that just because there may be a majority of the students who seem to not care about learning, for some of those its just an act and for some others who want to learn, you maybe doing an injustice. In my experience, when a student had a question after class or needed help after school, some teachers didn't have the time for them. That is an example of not doing your job.
