    "It is a strange school. The teachers all have to park in gravel parking lots while the students park in a oversized paved lot. It has a track that is dirt and makes your shoes dirty. It does not have many honors or AP classes, but the few that are there are good and the teachers are very good!"

    "Between honors courses and AP classes my college preparedness was measurable across any school. I made a lot of fun memories with clubs and sports. I made some great friends from all over the west side through travel and academic opportunities. I was in student government and tried to make the school a great experience for all."

    "Kealakehe High school is sometimes a good High School and sometimes not. Why is it sometimes a good high school? Firstly, there is a lot of different people there that don't care if you are different color or are of different status. Secondly, the school can be chill. Lastly, the school has many exciting school events for us all to get together as a school. Why is sometimes not a good school? Well there is a couple I want to say, but I'm only going to say three. Firstly, not all the teachers are good at teaching, they can give us overly dramatic grades, and even learn anything in the class. Secondly, there is not a lot of opportunities to do things, especially sports, different classes, and very limited in things to do with education. Lastly, the school lunch is not the best. I feel like I don't even know what I am eating sometimes and I find it a bit disturbing. All in all, depending on how you see things, this is how I see my school. Not all that good or bad."

    "What I loved most about my time at Kealakehe High School was the overall championed sense of diversity that engulfed our small community. KHS is a small representation of the diversity found in Hawaii, one with various cultures, customs, and languages. At Kealakehe I was exposed to people from different cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds. Above all, I was exposed to endless aloha from the student body and faculty. Looking back at my time at KHS, I am nothing but thankful for all of my experiences there and for the future it helped shape for me."

    "Your time at Kealakehe is what you make of it. If you choose to take the college route, you will find teachers and courses that prepare and challenge you; if you choose to get a diploma and go into the work force, things will definitely be more lax (the school does provide some career preparation, like an on-campus auto-body shop). KHS has some really great faculty members, but if you wish to go to college, your preparation for higher education depends heavily on YOU. The college counselor is relatively new, and your guidance counselor has a lot of kids to help just graduate, so don't expect a lot of help from them. The school does not help with college essays, standardized tests, etc. Don't be discouraged, though, because some really great people going to really great places make it out of KHS just fine."
