The Hawaii School System
The only U.S. state that outside of North America, the island state of Hawaii is home to approximately 1.5 million residents. There are almost 400,000 K-12 pupils divided among the state’s public and private schools. Public school students in Hawaii attend schools under the nation’s only statewide public school system. In total, there are seven different districts overseen by the Hawaii Department of Education.
Below you can see the student-teacher ratio of some of Hawaii's largest schools. Crowded classrooms sometimes mean that teachers can't address the learning needs of each student. If you've got a student who needs to catch up, Varsity Tutors can help by connecting you with a talented Hawaii tutor.

James Campbell High School has a 17 1 student-teacher ratio.

Gov. Wallace Rider Farrington High School has a 18 1 student-teacher ratio.

Almost all of Hawaii’s top high schools have student-to-teacher averages that hover around the state average of 16:1. The very best public high school in Hawaii has class sizes that fall well below the state average, however, with a student-to-teacher ratio of 12:1. Most of the top ten public high schools offer Advanced Placement courses to their students, and altogether, Hawaii’s AP exam pass rate averages to just below 50 percent.

Whether your child is a grade schooler who needs help ensuring his or her foundational skills are strong before moving onto more advanced concepts or a high schooler who could use some guidance as he or she prepares for the ACT or SAT, private tutoring in Hawaii can resolve academic problems of all kinds. Though your first instinct might be to purchase a do-it-yourself resource like review workbooks, consider looking into tutoring. The assistance of a tutor gives your child the chance to interact one-on-one with an experienced educator during lessons that are taught in a manner custom-fit to your student’s style. This may mean incorporating your child’s interests into sessions, using special techniques that appeal to your child’s preferred instructional style, or another method that’s unique to your child’s learning needs.
Hawaii Test Scores
The chart above shows how the busiest Hawaii high schools fared on state assessments. From third through eighth grade, students take the Smarter Balanced Assessments, a range of tests that evaluate their knowledge and application of Common Core concepts in English language arts and mathematics. Students are required to take the SBAs once more, in their junior year of high school. If your child is experiencing pre-test jitters as he or she prepares for statewide assessments, college admissions exams, or just next week’s math test, he or she might find private tutoring to be the extra help necessary to conquer his or her fears. And if your student is in one of the colleges located in Hawaii, there are tutors available who specialize in college-level courses and beyond. See how Hawaii colleges rank below.
