Recognized Alumni

Kahuku's high school students have made a name for themselves. Kahuku High School is ranked nationally in the U.S. for football and in 2007 was second in the nation to De La Salle High School of Concord, CA, for the most active NFL players from a single high school. Besides producing football champions, Kahuku High School students have also won titles in track and field, wrestling, basketball, water polo, volleyball and judo. They also do well in academics and the arts.


Other students at Kahuku High who are not athletes have placed in the top ten spots in the U.S. in academic contests, such as History Day and We the People. The school's choir Vocal Motion constantly sweeps competitions at national venues. Other students have won the photography portfolio category in the Scholastic Arts competition, which is the state's most competitive art contest for high school students. All in all, students from Kahuku High have received recognition in 25 national contests, which is more than any other public school in Hawaii.
