Share Button

This is the ultimate guide to all private & public schools in Honolulu – elementary, middle & high schools. We have highlighted the number of students & teachers, included a link to every school’s website and a brief comment on every school. Additionally, for the private schools, when readily available online,  we outlined tuition costs. All data based on September 2017.

Here is a map that shows all schools in Honolulu. You can click on the pin of the school location you are interested in, then click the school name that pops up and you will be taken to a brief profile of that school.

PUBLIC SCHOOLS
NOTEPublic Schools are divided below into each level (Elementary, Middle, High Schools). Within each level the schools are further divided into their Complexes, going from West (Radford/Salt Lake) to East (Kaiser/Hawaii Kai). A Complex is similar to a school district system, containing a few elementary schools, 1 or 2 middle schools and 1 high school. Residents attend the elementary school, middle school and high school within the same complex that the DOE (Department of Education) designates as covering their neighborhood. For example, the schools in the Kaiser Complex serve Hawaii Kai. If you live there, your child will be enrolled in one of the elementary schools in the Kaiser Complex, then go on to Kaiser Complex’s Niu Valley Middle School and finally graduate from Kaiser High School. More information on Honolulu’s Complexes can be found here. Only by obtaining a Geographic Exception can a student attend a public school outside their complex. Full information on Geographic Exceptions, including applying for one, can be found here.
