Waialua High & Intermediate School


Located on the north shore of Oahu, Waialua High & Intermediate School has a student body consisting of many families who fall below the poverty line. Many parents and guardians lack the resources to support afterschool programs for their children. It is with $55,000 in funding from the R.E.A.C.H. Initiative that Waialua High & Intermediate can successfully offer an afterschool Learning Center for students and their families to experience highly technical science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM) programs, which seek to enrich existing education and inspire creativity for the future. By offering afterschool programs such as the Learning Center, students who previously lacked confidence in their academic abilities, may now feel excited and prepared for college.
