There have been several alma mater written for KHS, but the most renown has to be the one penned by proud graduate and beloved island entertainer Jimmy “Kimo” Borges III:
Kukui High School Alma Mater
Sung to the tune of “This Old Man”
Kukui High, Kukui High,
Raise Your Nuts Up To The Sky!
When You Grab Them, Sing Out Strong,
Let The World Hear Kukui’s Song!
Kukui’s Nuts Are Big and Bold,
There to Love and There to Hold,
So Grab Your Nuts and Don’t Be Shy,
Show Your Nuts for Kukui High!
