    I'm a sophomore at this school and you don't know how happy I am to be a Marauder. The teachers at this school actually care about your well being and do all they can to help you. Our principal is an amazing principal who cares a lot about his students. I absolutely love football season and I always look forward to Arthur's Awards... HYPED UP! I'm taking AP classes next year and I hear great things about them. This school has great clubs with many great opportunities and I just love it here. It is definitely about the effort that you put in and Waipahu no matter how "ghetto" people say it is is a great school. I'm definitely proud to be a Marauder and I'm staying a Marauder for the rest of my high school life ) and like one of the reviews said down there "Love this school brah..Itz da`best. "

    I'm a sophomore here at Waipahu High School and I just have to say how happy I am here. I'm in the band and on the track and field team and its been awesome~! Our principal is very involved and so are the staff. We have 'Arthur Awards' or challenges between classes for school spirit every year on our homecoming day that I look forward to every year. The teachers care about us and are involved in our work and many after-school tutoring or help is provided. It's all about the effort YOU put in. There's also a lot of clubs and sports to get involved in! It's a great school.
