Waikiki High School- Home of the wild whales
Welcome to Waikiki High School! This is one of the best ranked high schools in the nation. In fact, it is number 10. The school has state of the art technology. Each student has to purchase a laptop for a small fee. But all the computers are very nice, and high speed. (The whole campus is wireless!) Every class can be taken online, or in a standard classroom setting. The teachers feel that every learning style should be presented so that every student can achieve the best grades possible. The staff is one of the most diverse in the country. A lot of teachers speak multiple languages, so many of the foreign students feel at right at home.
Because the students have many learning style possibilities, they get very good grades. In fact, 20% of all Waikiki High School graduates go on to attend Ivy League Colleges.
As for the athletic department, they do exceptionally well. The wild whales water polo team is a Division I team. It was a close game against Laguna Beach, California, but the wild whales came out on top as the Division champions! As for other sports teams, we excel in football, soccer, tennis, and lacrosse.
Our art department is doing very well also. Our show choir is third in the nation, and competes on a regular basis. Our marching band performs at half time shows for some major league football teams.
Our theatre company will be putting on four performances of the musical Hairspray in the spring.
Come to Waikiki High School!
