    This school has made a major turn around! Even though it's located in an economically depressed area, the administration tirelessly applies for and wins grants yearly. This school offers: free after school programs (tutoring, cooking, sports, robotics, art, to name a few offerings), required in computer class coding, Presidential Achievement, Girl Up!, National Junior Honor Society of Middle School Students, a vast library with OverDrive access, Honors courses, drama, chorus, piano, and art. Look out for an update to the 2018-2019 social studies curriculum! Their resources go beyond what is tangible and includes each staff member's dedication to your child's success. Though I must add their use of Google classroom and Infinite Campus helps parents keep track of their children's deadlines better than an analog planner. Don't count Wahiawa Middle School out because of a review posted 11 years ago. Smart and savvy leadership has flipped the script on this public institution of learning.

    While this school has a great art class and library, this school lacks focus on the students. Kids are often passed over and not made to achieve success in school. I feel that it cannot meet it's educational responsiblities due to lack of funding. My son attended here and was never given a single book for any class. They had about 30 class books per room that was shared among all the students, this prevents kids from taking the books home to study. I could not help my student study due to lack of study materials. I think this could be a great school with support from the community.
