Our school is dedicated to helping students succeed. We have high expectations for our students in line with the State Strategic Plan and the Strive HI Performance System. On August 19, the Hawaii State Department of Education (Department) released the first annual results of the Strive HI Performance System, Hawaii's new school accountability and improvement system that replaces components of the No Child left Behind Act of 2001(NClB). The results include data on student proficiency in reading math, and science, student growth in reading and math, chronic absenteeism, 8th and 11th grade ACT results, high school graduation rates, college enrollments, and achievement gaps. As part of the new system, the Department also classified schools for rewards, interventions, and support. Based on the SY2012-13 results, our school has been classified as a Recognition School.
We are committed to achieving our goal of success for every student.
Very truly yours,
