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
