Military Transition School

Welcome to Kalāheo High School. We are honored to have you as a new member of our student body and will work hard to provide a supportive learning environment for all our students. We are proud of our diversity. Our students and families come from all points on the map. Kalāheo's faculty, staff, and student body are composed of individuals from all parts of the United States and many parts of the world. This basediversity leads to a varied and rich learning environment.

We understand the challenges you may be experiencing as you transition to Hawai'i. New home, new school, and new environment - they all can be overwhelming at times. We want to make your transition as smooth as possible, with a variety of services we can offer.


The faculty, staff, and students of Kalāheo High School wish to extend the spirit of aloha to you and your students as you transition to life on the island of Oahu.  Although Hawai’i is a beautiful and exciting place to be stationed, acclimation to a new and unfamiliar environment can be difficult for service members and their families.  We at Kalāheo High School hope to make the transition as smooth as possible by providing you with as much information about the school and local culture as possible!


The Transition Center in Room D103 is run by the Alaka'i group of students. These students work together with the registrar, the counseling team, staff, and you to ensure a smooth transition into Kalaheo.  On your first day, we will meet in D103 and give you a short presentation about our school, take you on a tour of campus, and get your student ID.  The Alaka'i want to make sure you have a great first start to being a part of the Mustang Community. 


Although this page is not all-encompassing, we at Kalāheo High School hope that it can at least serve as a guide to what our school and local culture have to offer!
