Very similar to regular DOE schools.



Students order school lunch or bring their own.


Parents provide transportation to and from school.


Charter school students can no longer attend local schools’ A+ programs. Some students go to Boys/Girls Club at Pahoa High.


REAL Class is one of many fine programs at the Hawaii Academy of Arts and Sciences Public Charter School.


REAL Classes reside in pleasant and modern air-conditioned classrooms.


We are a self-contained program, meaning there will not usually be a separate art teacher, a PE teacher, etc.  However, these subjects are part of our curriculum and we integrate these topics and concepts into other classroom activities.
