    "I was a student at Kahakai in the early 90's. Went there for 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade. I saw some brutal fights there. If you were a white kid good luck because the teachers wouldn't break it up and save you when you were face down in dirt bleeding. No. They watched. I saw a small white girl get beat by a 200lb girl. Teachers did nothing. Blood pouring out of her face. T shirt ripped. They. Just. Watched. Also I'd love to know if they still make the 4th and 5th graders work in the cafeteria doing dishes and cleaning. Payment when you were done was a stale peanut butter cookie. So I guess since we got something for our work its just child labor and not slavery."

    "I moved to the Kailua Kona in July 2014 from the Bay Area in California, where my children were enrolled at John Green Elementary in Dublin, CA for three years. Their previous school had a 10 rating in 'Great Schools', and achieved an API score of 961. Therefore, I had my apprehensions and predispositions of Kahakai Elementary. However, I am thoroughly surprised with Kahakai. The physical infrastructure of Kahakai is cleaner, better maintained, and bigger than John Green. In addition, the Office Staff is friendlier, extremely supportive, and caring. The Office Staff at John Green were quite rude and inattentive. The Vice Principals and Principal at Kahakai, personally helped me with administrative issues to help my transition easier. Most importantly, Kahakai teachers are better equipped, stricter, and don't require the assistance of parents for classwork, homework, and special projects. My anxieties were artificial, and my bias of Hawaiian schools were wrong. Take it from a parent who moved from an affluent neighborhood of Dublin with highly rated schools; Kahakai is a great school, and we prefer to have our boys attend their elementary years here; as opposed, to John Green."

    "Excellent school!! Principal is progressive and students are positively encouraged. Each student is provided with tools such as individual laptops. Advanced learning beyond grade level is available for exceptional students."

    "My daughter is a student at Kahakai Elementary and I am so pleased with the overall curriculum. The teachers and staff are very good about keeping parents up to date on things. I really appreciate their communication whether it's reminders of classroom events, school events or balances on accounts. I am pleased with the security and safety this school provides. I rated it only four stars because of the am and pm carousel of traffic and the not so ample parking."

    "Kahakai elementary was quite enjoyed by my daughter, who was in "senior" kindergarten. There was a nice sense of camaraderie with parents, and the educational material worked well with her. The missing 5th star is due only to the long carousel of cars before and after school to drop off and retrieve our children!! (ugh...)"
