Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Milalani Town District Curriculum
In addition to maintaining quality learning opportunities in core subjects, such as the Sciences and Social Studies, the CCSS revamps English Language Arts and Math instruction. Both will attain a greater focus on in-depth understanding. In math, students will learn the logic behind equations, instead of simply memorizing how to perform them. In ELA, students will be expected to critically assess texts and produce writing which is reflective of this critical ability.
Starting in 2016, students must earn three credits in math and four credits in English in order to graduate from Mililani High School. Students are also required to complete a Personal Transition Plan (PTP) before graduation, the purpose of which is to prepare students for an easy, successful transition to a career or to college. This PTP calls for students to attend Advisory classes throughout high school and complete all tasks assigned by Advisory teachers. The Hawaii State Board of Education oversees the Personal Transition Plan policy.

Chalk Talk: Tips for Writing Better Essays
Just like applying to college or studying effectively, writing quality essays is all about planning. Whether the essay must be done quickly, as in a test setting, or more time is given, such as a homework assignment, a well-written essay starts with two important planning strategies: brainstorming and outlining. During brainstorming, students should produce as many ideas as possible relevant to the topic. After choosing the most important points from the brainstorm material, students can then begin outlining. An outline is like a map to an essay; once completed, the writer has an idea of what information to place where, and can then begin writing. By following these two simple steps, students should see improvement in the depth of information and the coherency of their essays.
