As a REALTOR on Oahu, I am frequently asked about ranking the public schools on Oahu. What I can suggest is that you review reports such as these, ask friends and colleagues, and visit and speak with the Hawaii public schools themselves. Make your own assessment. These Oahu public school reports are just one tool to use and are not the definitive resouces on the quality of Oahu public schools. As I have stated before, how a child will do in school has much to do with his or her parents’ involvement in his or her education and whether the learning instutiton is a good fit for the child. Some children who attend Oahu public schools do as well or better than kids that attend private schools. And vice versa; attending a private school does not guarantee your child will do well or even attend college.  There are many factors to consider.
