Pros: updated technology
Cons: gossiping, bullies, establishing clicks, upper management lacks education, experience, and business professionalism and maturity, time wasters get away with doing nothing
Employees who work hard and dedicate themselves to the school, suffer criticism, are considered an outcast, and soon sent to the door.
Princess Pauahi Bishop would be, and maybe is saddened, that her good deed turned into a monopoly over power and money. There is no genuine care for employees, much of whom are under-paid, those who spend time gossiping and wasting company monies are honored. Students are not receiving the highest level of education for a private school. Don't be fooled. It is not the same. Have you seen Kamehameha students from the Hawaii campus? Disgraceful.
Nothing changed through the reorganization 20 years ago. There is absolutely no fairness and even aloha for employees. Employees run that school into a disgrace.
Gossiping is very bad and the way you can be targeted if they don't like you. Take a look at the high rate of vacancies the schools have in Keaau. Very political. I would not recommend anyone to work there or even send your kids there. You will be sadly disappointed. Working here is like living in prison. Don't let the fake smiles fool you, because those are the ones gaining all the rewards. The real workers, educated workers, are bullied and picked on constantly.
There is no teaching of Hawaiian values and morals. Why? Because the adults there can't even do it. You would think an organization like this would be different. Full of love and not tolerate idle gossip. It is, instead filled with people who maneuvered their way into a job who care nothing for the Hawaiian people.
Think twice before deciding to work in this environment, or subject your child to such torture of no support, no extra help, made fun of in front of others, and the list goes on.
I don't think this school can recover. If you see the highest decrease in enrollment and continuous vacancies....think why this is. It is not a place of love, christianity, and nurturing.......
We Hawaiians did better without this fake school.
