Maui High School opened in 1913 in the community of Hamakuapoko, which is located in the northeast sector of Maui.  Maui High School was the first academic high school on the island with an initial enrollment of sixteen students.  In 1972, the present Maui High School campus opened in Kahului, the heart of central Maui. The school is now comprised of twelve major buildings, 36 portable classrooms, and several athletic facilities on 75 acres.  At the time, over 60% of the school’s student body traveled from the northeast sector, a predominantly agricultural and rural community. Central Maui students were added to the school’s population at that time.

Maui High now serves the Central Maui community of Kahului, the business and transportation center for the island, as well as the South Maui communities of Kihei and Wailea, a newer, resort and tourism driven area of the island.  Approximately 60% of our student population resides in Kahului, while the remainder comes to us from Kihei and Wailea.  We also serve a number of students who attend Maui High on Geographic Exceptions to participate in some of our outstanding programs. 

Maui High is a comprehensive high school, offering extensive programs for students in grades 9-12.  The school is a Smaller Learning Communities driven school, where students in grades 9 and 10 are part of learning teams of up to 150 students, sharing common faculty and aligned coursework.  Grades 11 and 12 are driven by Career Pathways where student select and complete a course of study within the school curriculum.
