Share Button

If you’re considering Central Oahu – Pearl City, Aiea, Waipahu, Mililani, Wahiawa – in your real estate search, you may be wondering about the education options. After all, schools in Central Oahu currently don’t enjoy the same profile as their neighbors on the southern side of the Island.

Honolulu has the marquee names in private institutions, for instance, and the 2nd City is where Hawaii’s newest public schools are being opened, with more to come. Should a parent be worried if they’re considering moving to Central Oahu? Short answer: No.

The long answer is contained in the listings below. There you’ll find elementary schools that are ranked in the Top 10 in all Hawaii by Honolulu Magazine. Further down are 3 high schools that US News & World Report has given the same honor this year. All of them in Central Oahu.

Private schools are covered, too, this area offering religious-based institutions, intensive college-prep curriculums and some that provide both. Shopping for a home in Central Oahu doesn’t mean sacrificing anything on the education front for your family. All the reasons why are spelled out below.
