Waipahu District and Curriculum
The Hawaii State Department of Education oversees the curriculum of Waipahu-area schools. Schools follow course standards outlined by Hawaii Content and Performance Standards, as well as the new Common Core State Standards (CCSS). The CCSS are scheduled for full implementation in the 2013-2014 school year. Both sets of standards are designed to ensure the effectiveness of the school system in producing students who can comfortably transition to college or careers.

Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Waipahu District Curriculum
Mathematics and English Language Arts (ELA) will receive the most change under the CCSS. Math instruction, instead of focusing on learning by rote, seeks to inspire students to be curious about math and to pursue the discipline in a post-secondary setting. High school students have options as to which courses to take, although Geometry and Algebra remain the foundation.
English Language Arts instruction will expand to ensure that students can interact deeply and critically with a wide variety of texts, including nonfiction, fiction, and informational. Students will receive this instruction in a variety of ELA courses, including Expository Writing. Waipahu High School is dedicated to preparing students for college. As part of this effort, all high school students choose an Academic Pathway. Six varying pathways are available, from Arts and Communication to Industrial Engineering Technology.

Chalk Talk: How to Choose a College Major
Choosing a college major is a decision that can affect the rest of students’ lives; to ensure they’re making the right choices, students can perform a few simple tasks. For example, students might consider taking career inventory tests, usually available through school guidance counselors. For students who have already identified potential careers, research is necessary. Analysis of college majors will give students a better understanding of which majors suit their interests and best support their desired careers. With a little planning, students can select a major that will serve them throughout the rest of their working career.
