One University of Hawaii at Manoa senior set to walk on stage Saturday at the 108th commencement ceremony recalled how she initially had her mind set on a mainland college. But now she says she wouldn’t change her decision if she had to do it all over again. Sasha Yamada graduated from Kahuku High School in 2015 as a valedictorian and wanted to leave Hawaii and attend any mainland college.
Mahalo teachers for your expertise, effective feedback, and endless hours spent helping our students to yield exemplary projects/products/performances. The assistance of other faculty and staff in the area of judging, SLC planning/alignment, providing resources/spaces, etc. are also greatly appreciated. HUGE KAHUKU KUDOS to Mrs. Oshima for being an integral part of our students’ success. Her infinite knowledge, experience, and passion are unparalleled!
Both qualified to represent us at the National competition in Florida in June.

Aloha Kahuku High & Intermediate School Community Members,
Our administration was made aware this evening of a threat to our campus on social media. The Honolulu Police Department (HPD) was notified and is currently investigating.
All threats to our school and students are taken very seriously and are investigated thoroughly. Terroristic threats are considered Chapter 19 Class A student conduct offenses. Consequences can range from detention to dismissal with the possibility of arrest and serious criminal charges. Please refrain from reposting threats. According to HPD, reposting a threat is as good as making the threat itself and contributes to carrying on the initial threat, prolonging the problem.
Out of an abundance of caution, HPD officers will be present on campus tomorrow. School will be open and there will be no change in the schedule.
As with any emergency-type situation, we are striving to balance the need for safety with our overall commitment to provide students and families with every sense of normalcy. We appreciate your help as we work together to keep all of our students safe. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our administration at (808) 305-7372.
Dr. Donna Lindsey
We are providing an awesome opportunity for 25 of next year’s ninth graders to start the school year as a college student. The Early College Program is free and offers courses taught by Windward Community College professors. This will give these students an opportunity to earn 37 or more college credits by the time they graduate. Preference will be given to Native Hawaiian students and those who will be the first in their family to attend college. Applications can be picked up from Mr. Mumma in Q2. If you have any questions you can see or call Mr. Mumma at 305-7360.
