A new high school for Kihei, Maui

The governor of Hawaii released $8 million last Monday to purchase 77 acres of land for the proposed 215,000 sq ft, 1,600 student high school.  The school will be located on the mauka side of the Piilani Highway near Kulani Hakoi in North Kihei.  The process of construction is slated to be the previously successful “design build” method where a developer builds the school, then leases it to the State Department of Education until paid off in 20 to 30 years.  This project whould be a huge boost to the Kihei/Wailea area in the construction industry, stature of the community and convenience to the families in the area.
