Oahu School Spotlight Series

Oahu School Spotlight Series

Researching schools to ensure your child gets the best possible education can be exhausting and time-consuming. The usual approach involves collecting information, talking to other parents, and visiting schools in-person. However, we decided to streamline this process by bringing the information directly to you through our blog series!

Oahu Lux Homes is teaming up with local schools on the island, to unveil the inner workings of each institution and provide you with a glimpse into what it would be like for your child to attend. Ashliey Wasson, the CEO of Oahu Lux Homes Team, is personally connecting with every principal or director on the island for face-to-face interviews. During these interviews, Ashliey poses critical questions that every parent has before deciding whether to proceed with a particular school. Being a parent herself, she understands the ‘right’ questions to ask. This is a great opportunity for you to meet the head of the school, learn about the policies and services, as well as any after-school programs.

We will also include a virtual tour of each campus, allowing you to have a walkthrough experience and gain a better understanding of the school environment. 

The first batch of interviews will showcase the Windward side of Oahu, encompassing Kailua and Kaneohe. Yet we will cover all tiers of schools, including public, private, and charter institutions. Following this region, we will delve into the other sides of the island, until we document all that Oahu has to offer.

Interview Questions and Answers

The interview questions will specifically address the following areas:

  • School’s mission or philosophy (culture)
  • Number of student enrollment
  • Average student-teacher ratio
  • Extracurricular activities do you offer
  • Some of the challenges the school or district is facing this year
  • School goals for 2024 and beyond 
  • Greatest strengths
  • Does the school strictly follow the state curriculum or added to the curriculum
  • What resources the school provides to children who need additional help and support
  • Hybrid options for students 
  • How the school handle bullying, including cyber bullying

Connecting with Educators and Administration

When considering the best school for your child, it is important to take into account educators and administration. Not only will we highlight the principal or director, but there will also be school staff members introduced in these videos. From teachers to lunch cooks – you will meet the dedicated individuals who make up each school. 

Our goal is to help you make an informed decision for your child's education. We understand the importance of quality administrators and staff, contributing to a healthy learning environment. This is why we are taking this interview process seriously, in providing you the best possible information that we can. 

Why Oahu Schools?

Oahu boasts some of the most top-rated private schools, according to Niche, with diverse student populations. Private schools of this kind can cost upwards of $30,000 annually for K-12. Positioned between the mainland and Japan, Oahu attracts a high rate of international students, enhancing its rich culture while cultivating a global learning environment. 

But what sets Oahu schools apart is the glow from the Aloha spirit that fills each classroom. Regardless of the school type, every school functions out of the heart of Aloha, reflecting kindness, maintaining a sense of community, and harmony.
