Often heard is this: "I want be in a neighborhood near a really good private or public school."

While driving around Honolulu today and seeing the YELLOW CRANES (counted about 12) hoovering over buildings that are under various levels of construction, a thought popped up. If we have thousands of new dwellings being created, how will the schools cope in handling this increase in new families?
There are several websites that have spent a huge amount of time and effort in studying and examining Hawaii’s school systems. They then, create comprehensive lists and reports Hawaii’s schools, thus ranking them by using data from the state Department of Education. These sites review
1> How much the students are learning - evaluating their grades and other measures
2> How happy everyone involved is, parents, students, teachers, employees at the way that learning is being accomplished.
Take note EDUCATORS, check your school to see if you measure up, then you can work on those areas that are ranked less than other schools.
With all the new construction the Department of Business, Development, & Tourisms completed a recent economic study April 2015. [click here for the report] Over the next ten years, the population in Honolulu County (Island of OAHU) is projected to grow by 8 percent. The 10 year forecasted demand for additional housing units by county is 25,847 units for Honolulu and 66,000 to 77,000 for the state over all.
Hawaii’s housing market remains unbalanced due to a constrained supply on one side, and increasing demand on the other side. Prices for homes approached new all-time highs in 2014, is expected to be higher by end of 2015 and this new record surpassed the previous record set in 2005. High housing prices should increase residential construction activity in the state.
