School Notes:

  • Whether through acceleration or remediation, Assets offers a supportive environment where classes are small and the curriculum is individualized to meet each student’s specific needs. Students with learning differences, needing a structured language intervention program, are supported through multi-sensory approaches such as Orton-Gillingham, Slingerland, Project Read and Assets’ own Advanced Language Curriculum. Students of high potential are supported through Kaplan’s Differentiated-Integrated model as well as Renzulli’s model. A selection of elective and enrichment courses for all students are balanced between Technology and the Arts and encourage curiosity, self-expression and the acquisition of skills and concepts. Our high school's Mentorship program helps students make the connection between school and work.

School Reviews

my daughter is 15 years old now, she is studying in HKG and just finished grade 9, but school result is not good. She is not interested in learning chinese even, so would like sending her to Honolulu for secondary school for learing if possible. I have a sister living in Honolulu too, so will be my daughter's guardian when staying in Honolulu. could you send me more details about your school to see if your school whether suit and fit for my child for studying.
