Admiral Arthur W. Radford High School, known as Radford High School, is a coeducational college preparatory public high school in the City and County of Honolulu, Hawaii.

Basic information[edit]

The school is named after Navy Admiral Arthur William Radford who served as Commander-in-Chief of the United States Pacific Command after WWII. Radford High School, was established in 1957 and graduated its first senior class in June 1960. <it is fully accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges.[1] The school is located on 27 acres of land on Salt Lake Boulevard, outside of the Aliamanu Military Reservation.[citation needed] The campus boasts the bronze sculpture Striving for Excellence by Jan Gordon Fisher.[citation needed] Radford serves a community of approximately 30,000 people.[citation needed] Its students are ethnically diverse and about 63% military dependents, resulting in a yearly transiency rate of about one third.[citation needed]

Boundaries

The school community is located within a one-mile radius of Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, Foster Village and Aliamanu.[citation needed] Radford High School's boundary encompasses the following civilian housing areas: Aliamanu, Alii Plantation, Crosspointe, and Foster Village. It encompasses the following military housing areas: Hokulani, Ohana Nui, Hickam Air Force Base, Catlin Park, Ford Island, Hale Moku, Halsey Terrace, Little Makalapa, Makalapa, Moanalua Terrace, Pearl Harbor Shipyard Quarters, and most of Aliamanu Military Reservation Housing.[citation needed]

The Military Youth Advisory Council (MYAC)

MYAC is the school’s primary community group and is composed of school leaders, three military commands, Family Service Centers, business and civilian leaders, PTSO representatives, students, and the community college liaisons. The council addresses most issues of its transient population, meeting once a month on the Radford campus. It is a highly functional[peacock term], comprehensive partnership which has resulted in many exemplary programs and improvements for Radford students and has solved many critical campus/community issues.[2]

Radford High School is part of the Hawaii Department of Education Aiea-Moanalua-Radford Complex Area in the Central Oahu District along with Aiea High School and Moanalua High School.[3]

Alma mater[edit]

Come ye all of Radford, rise strong and sing,

Let praises to our colors ring.

Through the years, may all honor be

To our school with pride and loyalty.

Radford High forever, sing Radmen sing,

Lift high all voices, let our hearts join in.

We shall guard her honor, faithful true we’ll be,

Lift our royal banners, in sky, on land, and sea.[5]

Radford offers courses such as Japanese language, introduction to industrial engineering, forensic science, entrepreneurship, marine science, and language arts courses for the gifted and talented, two advanced placement courses in each core area, the Multimedia Program under the Arts and Communications Career Pathway, a Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps program, a Freshman Academy, the Culinary Arts Academy, a Building and Construction Academy, and other electives. Radford maintains several comprehensive student support programs. The Student Transition Center provides new student orientation, a "lunch buddy" program and a tutorial for those students who need extra study assistance.

The Discovery Center assists students with job preparation and placement. The College and Career Resource Center helps students with college searches and applications. The school offers a music program that includes a concert band, made up of less experienced players, a symphonic band, for those with more training, and a marching band. The Radford "Rams" Marching Band began in the early 1970s and continued through to 2008 when the name was changed to the Radford "Red Brigade" Marching Band. By 2013, the drumline had established itself as one of the top drumlines in the state of Hawaii.
