Here's a company that will let you research public high schools across the country -- including Hawaii.
New school? Find
info on the Net
The firm, 2001 Beyond, sells information to real estate brokers, but you can get the basic statistics by going to http://www.2001beyond.com/index.htm and following the instructions.
The company knows that when families move to a new area, one of the first things they ask is, "How are the schools?"
You can find money spent per student, the student-teacher ratio, the average class size, the number of graduating seniors attending college, the National Merit Finalists and the seniors' average SAT scores.
The Web wizards at the Star-Bulletin also maintain information in a searchable database on Hawaii schools, which you can access at http://doit.starbulletin.com/1998/satscores/
P.S.--For Hawaii preschool information, see:
"Home on the Web" is a weekly Friday feature of the Star-Bulletin.
