High School

Peer Tutors Needed!
Peer tutoring is a great opportunity for students to contribute to our school community by helping their fellow classmates. Tutors help by sharing their understanding of a specific subject/course with their peers in a positive and encouraging environment. There are many benefits to being a peer tutor, including making a difference in someone's life and being able to share about this experience on your college application! Peer Tutor Qualifications:

  • B+ or higher in the specific course(s) you would like to tutor
  • Responsible
  • Positive attitude
  • Patient

If you're interested in being a peer tutor, please visit your class page and click on the peer tutor link to sign-up!

College Counseling

Aloha Seniors,

Please review the following scholarships and apply to those that are a good match for you. I recommend you act on applying right away: start your application, request transcripts and recommendations so that you can meet your deadline without asking for these items at the last minute. If you wait until the last minute, you run the risk that the person you are requesting the recommendation or transcript from will not be available, and then lose the opportunity to apply.
