    My child has attended Star of the Sea for the last two years. It has been a great experience. We felt welcomed at the school from the start after moving here from the mainland. The classrooms are large light bright and air conditioned. There is a specialized music teacher art teacher computer teacher and P.E. coach and a nice well stocked library. The class size is small - less than 20 per class with two classes per grade level. Homeroom teachers really get to know each student and their strengths and weaknesses. I think this school is a bargain - 1/2 half the price of many of the bigger more well known schools in Honolulu. Academics are good quality and on par with what we had at our mainland private school. My child is happy and thriving there.

    My son has been at Star of the Sea ELC for both preschool and kindergarten. He absolutely love it and I love it too. The teachers are fabulous kind supportive loving and full of amazing ways to teach. The facilities are state of the art computer labs incredible playground soccer field swings jungle gyms sand boxes just to name a few. My son has flourished in this school and I couldn't recommend it more highly.

    A decent school but same old boring curriculum for middle school. Not inspiring love of learning in my child. Some behavior problems hold back classes. Wish there was better supervision between classes and recess.

    Star of the Sea Elementary School has a great community feeling. The teacher/student ratio is great. Students are not left behind. The addition of the indoor gym is wonderful along with A/C in all classrooms! The teachers are approachable and willing to work with both the students and parents.

    Very high academic standard. Wonderful principal overall students are very centered and focused on doing all of their homework and classwork. Almost everyone is an A or B student. Grounds are not as nice as they used to be.
