Principal's Message

Aloha and welcome,

On behalf of the staff and students of Kealakehe High School, I would like to welcome you to our website. We are a comprehensive high school, serving students grade 9 through 12, located in the North Kona/Waikoloa of the island of Hawaii. Our enrollment is approximately 1,323 students. The school was accredited in 2014 by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) for a full six year term.

Our staff is dedicated to providing students a world class education that prepares them for the futures of their choice. KHS offers a full range of programs designed to ensure that every student is highly engaged in a rigorous, creative and innovative academic curriculum and in powerful applied learning practices aligned to college & career.  A full range of co-curricular opportunities supports students physical and social development.


Our school vision is to create "Harmony and unity through dynamic education and community for everyone, every time."  The "Dynamic" part of our vision drives us to continue developing and refining a school program that gets better each year with the collaborative efforts of teachers and students that strives towards equity & excellence.   We work closely with Kealakehe Intermediate School and our three elementary feeder schools (Holualoa, Kealakehe, and Waikoloa) in order to develop K-12 curriculum and instruction to meet the needs of all students.

Mahalo for supporting our community of learners.
