There is no where in Hawaii where one can find such an unusual and wonderful school. They cater to educating the whole child offering opportunities for every child to excel academically, artistically, musically, and athletically. I was lucky enough to have graduated from this school and now am even more fortunate to have my child attend. While the lower and middle schools are exceptional in nurturing a child and offer quality in their own right - I think their high school surpasses all others in the State, more so now than at any time before (yes, yes, even from when I went).
We pick up our ice-cream from the farm lot where Tropical Dreams is located. They sell huge tubs of gourmet ice-cream for $13.00, mango chutney directly from India, and other goodies. I love their Tahitian Vanilla Ice-cream- truly great. If you are looking for their ice-cream in smaller quantities ( like a pint) go to KTA where they sell it, find the one you love, and then head to the lot to get a great deal on a lot of delicious ice-cream.
While Dr. Hill's (formerly Dr. Timmel) staff is very gracious and welcoming, she is not. I am hoping that she works much better with animals than she does people, because her mannerisms towards owners is rather rude. And she wasn't so friendly toward my puppy either. She seemed really put out to be taking care of my dog even though we had an appointment, was very early, and are very friendly, patient people. I went to our local mother's playgroup where 5 out of the 5 mothers I talked to thought she had a terrible personality and encouraged me to go to Veterinary Associates on Mana Road. I am passing on the advice to save some happy pet owner from going to this unhappy vet.
