Student Success is our Goal
The AIR of success is everywhere at AHS. People often ask me “Why is Aiea HS the best!” It is because we care about each student and their growth as learners and leaders. It is because our school population is smaller so there are more opportunities for leadership through clubs, sports, and organizations. Our students excel in academics because our class sizes are smaller and our teachers provide many supports for success. Our staff is happy and they are highly qualified individuals that love our students and our school. We have supportive parents and community members that volunteer and help at events. It is easy to be successful when we have so many positive people making it happen!
Achievement: Aiea High School was highlighted for our students’ completion of 3+ scores on their Advanced Placement exams for SY 2014-2015. AHS showed that 55% of our students receive a 3 or above score on the AP exams! We were ranked 6th in 2013-2014, but now we are ranked #5 in the state. Our AP teachers are definitely the Best of the Best!
Our ACT scores were revealed and our junior class improved across all the curriculum areas. We are super proud of their accomplishment for this college entrance exam. They are now in the process of taking the Smarter Balanced Assessment which is also a college entrance exam for 7 states including Hawaii.
Our seniors are being acknowledged and accepted for scholarships to many colleges. Some have even been accepted to Ivy League schools. There are so many that I can’t name them all, but want them to know how proud we are of their academics and citizenship!
Integrity: Our students were recognized by the public recently for their work at Pali Momi and Kaiser with patients. Doing the right thing when no one is looking!
A special thank you to all of our teachers and staff that show integrity everyday in their decision making and support to our students and their families. Our school provides many opportunities of growth for our students because we have integrity in all of our actions!
Relationships: A huge thank you to our Alumni OG Slick and Eugene Carroll for helping our school with a donation of 2,300 shirts for our students from Dr. and Mrs. Rodney Chun. This is a donation of approximately $8,000. in merchandise.
We just received a $1000. grant from Monsanto for our Biomedical classes to purchase lab equipment for our students. We appreciate all the funds that help support our programs.
A big thank you to our partners at the Hickam AFB Airmen Leadership School for volunteering their time to clean and paint our campus on April 9th. They brought 50 volunteers and then our JROTC jumped in to help too! We are so thankful for all their hard work!
Keep breathing the AIR of Aiea,
Kim Sanders, Principal
