'Aiea High School is a public, co-educational college preparatory high school of the Hawaiʻi State Department of Education and serves grades nine through twelve. Established in 1961, 'Aiea High School is located in the 'Aiea CDP in the City and County of Honolulu of the state of Hawaiʻi.[8] It is situated on a former sugar cane plantation overlooking Pearl Harbor at 98-1276 Ulune St. The campus boasts the sculpture Early Spring by Satoru Abe.[citation needed]

History[edit]

'Aiea High School was founded in 1961 in a sugar plantation town overlooking Pearl Harbor.[9] From a modest beginning of eight buildings which included the cafeteria and the library, AHS has expanded to fifteen buildings. During the past forty-seven years, the school's enrollment has flourished from about two hundred students at its inception to more than 1,280.[10]

'Aiea High School is 100% networked for computer/data and video transmissions. The school's Local Area Network (LAN) is connected to the Hawaii State Department of Education's Wide Area Network and provides all networked computers access to the Internet.[11]

In October 2004, SCBM council was transformed to School Community Council (SCC). The SCC composed of elected members of the school's stakeholders, was developed as a result of the enactment of Act 51.[12]

In 1999, 'Aiea High School was recognized as an outstanding Blue Ribbon School.[13] The Smaller Learning Community (SLC) was formed in 2004 to offer ninth graders a seamless transition to high school. 'Aiea High School participated in the Focus on Learning (FOL) Self Study process and received its accreditation in June 2006.[14]

In 1989, the CLASS OF PO'OKELA O 89 broke the mold, they are the BEST class that ever WAS. The BEST class that ever IS. And the BEST class that EVER WILL BE!
