    Health & Safety: Hunter High is the safest school in the area, maybe in the State. It's very safe because everyone gets along very well, and if they don't; they GOT TO, and they will. Everyone loves the peace and everyone minding their own business. We all treat others with Respect. Why we have a Peace environment at all times. It's Drama-free. I think, that's why most Schools is full of dramas is cause of Lack of Respect. You got to Respect one another, or otherwise it'll be World War III. Gotta keep the peace, you know. ? Our school, is my "Ohana."

    Extracurriculars: I'm currently in a club called, "Key Club." We do a lot of service to the Community and also Nature. It's an amazing club and teaches me so much things. I learned how to connect more with nature and also with people individually. It makes such a difference in society. I'm grateful to have such an amazing club. It's a wonderful feeling to see you made a huge to the world and community.

    Overall Experience: Majority of students attending Hunter High are Polynesian or Pacific Islanders. What makes this school unique is that our school always participate in Community Service and quite very many service outside of school. One of my favorite experience is when our Student Body Officers found about a 6 Year old Young boy was diagnosed with a brain tumor and was told by the doctor, that he didn't have much time to live. The young boy's father asked the young one what is one thing he would love to visit. The Lil boy wanted to travel to Disney World. So, the father decided to take his wish to "Make a Wish Foundation." Our school heard about it and we worked hard together and raised $4,500 in less than 5 days ! It was amazing ! It was a wonderful experience to see everyone helping this poor boy fulfill his dream, and when we invited him to our assembly and the moment he said, "Thank you." Everybody in that Gymnasium room, were in tears. That was a very emotional and an amazing day of all my high school experience. May that little angel Fly High and Rest in Peace.

    Teachers: The teachers at Hunter High; I would say, are the best out there. I learned quite a lot of things in class because not only do they do such a great job at making it easy for students to understand, but they make the activities fun. Which is great because it not only gets everyone participating but most importantly, it boosts that bond between student and teacher. I had a few classmates with very low self-esteem, but making class fun and enjoyable, and create that bond with everyone, is amazing. It most only boost their self-esteem but also to know, they're still people that care for them. Teachers at Hunter High, and the most strong, inspirational and amazing people I have ever came across. Not only that they taught me so much throughout the years, but their words of encouragement and love but also, made me realize my self-worth. I'm honestly grateful I graduated from this school, it was truly an honor and wish nothing the best to all mvteacher. I expressed my gratitude to them. They aren't just my teachers, they're family.
