Athletics

The Department offers 20 interscholastic sports each school year — everything from air riflery to wrestling — and recently launched an intermediate athletics program for middle schools. Studies suggest a strong correlation between participating in athletics and academic success. Students participating in extracurricular activities must have a minimum 2.0 grade point average, and be passing in courses required for graduation.

​Interscholastic Athletics

Teams representing public schools participate as part of the Hawaii High School Athletic Association and compete in various leagues by island: the Big Island Interscholastic Federation, Kauai Interscholastic Federation, Maui Interscholastic League and the Oahu Interscholastic Association.
