I have not visited the school but I graduated with the class of 1966. I enjoyed my stay at Lahainaluna as a boarding student and it helped me be an independent individual. Yes I would recomend the school. I lost my 1965 and 1966 Yearbook. Would it be possible to obtain a digital copy or hard copy, andhow much would it cost. Virgilio Capino
