Cool Schools: Ke Kula ‘O Nawahiokalani'opu'u

KEA'AU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - It's time to feature another cool school and in honor of Merrie Monarch week we chose a school on the island of Hawaii. Nawahi high school is a public Hawaiian immersion school. The lower school is a charter school. They have a 100% graduation rate and 80% of their students go off to college. Nawahi has grown from just a handful of students 17 years ago to the 250 they boast today. The University of Hawaii at Hilo laboratory school is very "cool" - Malika shows us why.

See video to the right for the segments that aired on Sunrise.

Tonight on Hawaii News Now at 5:30pm we'll have a full story on the school.
