Dear Parents, Guardians and Community Members,
Schools are much more than just test scores. Yes, test scores are critical to entering good colleges and as proof of students learning yet a full service High School experience is critical to your student’s education. All focus at Kauai High is on student Growth; if students feel cared for and encouraged to grow then KHS students will be successful. Kauai High was rated #16 in the state out of 50 high schools by Honolulu Magazine (see below for more scores and where Kauai High ranks statewide). In addition to good rankings state wide, Kauai High School also has many unique programs that students take advantage of in order to become well rounded citizens. Did you know:
  • Kauai High is the only public high school on the island with a Mock Trial team ; at a recent competition of 27 schools Renee Anderson-Navarro won an award for being a Top Ten attorney
  • Kauai High is the only school on the island who participates in the Close Up Program to learn about government/ democracy via on-site visits, debates and discussions in Washington DC.
  • Kauai High students participate in Poetry Out Loud each year with class competitions followed by Oahu competitions
  • Kauai High Media students (Brooke Kanna, Haven Luper-Jasso, Marlena Lang, Leanna Thesken) were invited by PBS to the first PBS Town Hall; in addition PBS recognized their award winning video “The Bigger Picture”
  • Kauai High Science Students compete in Science Olympiad each year, along with Science Fair each year
  • Kauai High Students will be going to Hawaii Construction Career Days event in Hilo; taking advantage of free eventseven though teachers have to do lots of paperwork to make this event happen for students
  • Kauai High has a robotics team competing on November 4 and Nov 10 under direction of our new Teacher Laura Kelly
  • Key club members participate in hours and hours of service to community
  • Art Students compete for awards; most recently Ariel Ramseth won in the KIUC Calendar contest
    Our students make a difference in the community ; Kyla Koerte represented Hawaii at the Girl Scout National Council, one of 21 students from across the nation who coordinated this event as a future leader to make a difference in society
  • Teachers of distinction:
          ✓ Teacher Leah Aiwohi was selected as a member of the STEM Work Group 2017-18 for the DOE,
          ✓ Teacher J. Medeiros has served on the State Leadership Institute Advisory Council (was the only teacher in the state invited to participate) and will continue on the Design Team to update the Vision of the Leadership Institute
Here are some statistics which demonstrates with numbers the quality of a Kauai High School education: Out of 50 Public High schools throughout the state of Hawaii, Kauai High was:
  • # 8 in graduation rate
  • #10 in Math Percent Proficient on the state grade 11 “SBA” test
  • #14 in college going rate vs the 50 high schools
  • #15 in English Percent Proficient on the state grade 11 “SBA” test
We need parent / guardian support, follow your students on the “on line grading” portal. Get your own ID or use your students... but watch attendance, watch grades. We are a Team... We are our students GPS to the finish line of life beyond High School... We are our students guide to 9-16 education. Have your student go see their teachers after school every Thursday to ask questions if anyone is having academic struggles. We are here to help. Watch Facebook for more student accomplishments.
