The west coast of the Big Island of Hawaii, the southernmost of
the eight Hawaiian islands, and containing the southernmost point
of the 50 U.S. states, is renowned for its stunning natural beauty
of both land and ocean, mountains and valleys, cloud forests and
beaches. The living here is still slow-paced and friendly,
reflecting the spirit of Aloha that is at the heart of the island
experience. The Big Island is well-named, as its land size is
larger than that of the other seven Hawaiian islands combined. The
climate is tropical and warm, in the 70s and 80s most days,
year-round. The west coast of the Big Island is the dry side of the
island, meaning that we have a wet season and a dry one. Our
beautiful campus, with grassy slopes and bamboo groves, woods and
playing fields, and splendid vistas of the Pacific Ocean, sits on
the slope of Mauna Loa. We are a rural school serving a
historically agricultural area.
