​​​About this school

Kaimuki High provides a student-centered learning environment aimed at preparing students for college and careers. It also has one of two high school Performing Arts Centers on Oahu, and boasts a number of Smaller Learning Communities via its Academies to support student success.

The campus offers specialized programs for students with limited English skills and special education needs, vocational-technical programs and a broad cocurricular and athletic program. Kaimuki has an active School Community Council, which is comprised of school and community members who meet monthly to help guide the school's academic and financial plans.

Academies (Smaller Learning Communities)

A Smaller Learning Community (SLC) is a school organizational structure that is increasingly common in high schools.  It is used to subdivide large school populations into smaller, autonomous groups of students and teachers to create a more personalized learning environment to better meet the needs of students. At Kaimuki High School, starting from 9th grade, all students will be in an academy. ​Academies:

  • Freshmen Academy: Helps freshmen transition into Kaimuki High School. Students share the same core teachers and work together in teams.
  • Hospitality Academy: Includes Culinary, Hotel and Entertainment pathways.
  • STEM Academy​: Focus on Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.

Learning Center

  • Performing Arts — ​Kaimuki High School Performing Arts Center (KHSPAC)

Academic Plan & Financial Plan

Every school develops an Academic Plan as part of collaborative process with its School Community Council, staff and Complex Area. ​The three-year plan provides structure for a school's plans for improvement, achievement and innovation. The companion one-year financial plan outlines anticipated expenditures to realize the vision of the Academic Plan. Both are aligned to the state's 2017-2020 Strategic Plan.
