Radford Red Brigade

Awesome marching band season for the Radford Red Brigade. All your dedication and hard work was evident in your performances.


Please welcome Kekai Newman who has jumped in to teach Papa La`au and Woods. When speaking with Kekai you can see and hear his passion for his subject matter and students. He is a positive asset to the CTE department.

Mr. Troy Okamoto

Troy Okamoto goes above and beyond not only for his students but the Social Studies Department as well. Anytime there is something that needs to be done or volunteered for he never hesitates to fill the void.

Mrs. Elizabeth Patton

For the past 17 years, Radford Alumnus Elizabeth Patton has been a fixture in the Physical Education department. Throughout her years here, she has demonstrated outstanding qualities of not only of an effective teacher but of a mentor, coach and friend. Her loyalty and commitment to the school and its students go unparalleled. She consistently gives up her time for the betterment of the school and its students. Whether its supporting athletes at their games, assisting students in their college admission process or coaching Cross Country and Track and Field, we are very proud and fortunate to have Elizabeth Patton as a member of our Radford High School Community. Go Rams!

AVID Seniors

AVID Seniors were brought to the Loko Pa'aiau Fishpond in Aiea to immerse themselves in Hawaiian Culture and to volunteer to help on the property. They volunteered on their day off when the rest of the school was taking their PSAT! We learned about the importance of the fish pond to the Native Hawaiian culture and how few of them we have left on this island. Volunteers helped to move stepping stones and create a path around the fish pond to have better access to a heiau that was once being overgrown and unused.


Thank you to the Awesome Radford English Teachers (ARET)! The teachers in the English Language Arts Department haved worked diligently to make progress on the goals we set forth in our department Vision and Action Plan. Every ELA teacher is committed to do what is best for students and have selflessly given instructional time to have collaborative discussions of how best to support students' needs. Their efforts have yielded department-wide critical reading guidelines and a bank of vocabulary strategies.

Leadership Class Advisors

Mr. Baba, Mrs. Tiitii, Mr. Uganiza, Ms. Mina

A big thank you to our class advisers who teach a leadership class, but all of the endless hours in the summer, before and after school for promoting spirit for the grade level and school. They help guide their students to become leaders and students who show empathy and compassion and get others inspired to get involved. Know deep down the school and community appreciates you
