Principal Ken Yarnell's Message

“In my time at Aloha, I was given more than I could have ever expected. First, I was given an amazing education by hardworking and dedicated teachers who taught me to think deeply and critically about everything from calculus to government policies. But secondly, I was given a place in the kind, caring Warrior community--a community I know I will always have a place in.” ~ Nargiz Mitalipov (AHS ‘16 Valedictorian and Stanford University ‘20.”

Welcome to Aloha High School’s home on the web. On this site you can begin to discover what makes Aloha a special learning community.

First and foremost, we are committed to providing a rigorous, robust and relevant academic experience for our students. There are 23 Advanced Placement (AP) courses from which to choose as well as 11 courses that offer Dual Credit opportunities. Complementing these programs are our rich and growing Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs in Computer Science, Drafting, Auto Tech, Construction, Business & Marketing and Film

In addition to academics, our visual and performing arts department brings us beauty, excellence and thought-provoking art. Last year our New Day Singers earned a 2nd place finish at the Oregon Music Educators Association state championships and our AP Studio Art students continue to win regional, state and national awards. Warrior athletic teams are also exceptionally strong, as our teams have won seven state championships and 14 Metro League Championships in the last 10 years.

The foundation for our academic, artistic and athletic excellence lies with our teachers, support staff, advisors and coaches. Our staff is smart, committed and hard-working, enabling them to provide a meaningful education for each and every student.

Nonetheless, what makes our Aloha distinct is an inclusive and inspirational sense of community. Our students are dedicated to both an inspiring sense of kindness and GRIT, while coming from a wide variety of backgrounds. Whether viewed from a racial, ethnic or socioeconomic lens, Aloha is a diverse learning community. We embrace this diversity, recognizing a variety of cultural experiences makes each of us a “bigger and better” person and ready to engage as a citizen in our democratic republic.

Our parents continue to be the backbone of Aloha. This support takes many forms including volunteering, serving in the Aloha PTO or other parent groups and supporting our commitment to GRIT and discipline.

On this website you can meet our teachers, learn of our rigorous and innovative academic programs and policies and practices designed to ensure a safe learning environment.

Please enjoy your virtual visit and I hope we can welcome you to our campus one day soon!

Go Warriors!
