This ethos shapes and defines an ʻIolani School education
‘Iolani School is a culturally diverse, college preparatory school for 2,200 students in kindergarten through 12th grade founded upon Christian values.
Academic excellence and personal growth flourish in an atmosphere that is challenging and competitive, yet caring and nurturing. Through dynamic and personalized instruction in a multitude of disciplines, ‘Iolani's day and boarding programs foster educational excellence and personal growth in an environment that values collaboration, humility, and respect for all community members.
After years of planning, the Eddie Hamada Legacy Project installed a life-size bronze statue of Edward K. Hamada ’46 and a “One Team” wall display on Jan. 26. The project strives to educate students about the shared values that make our school special.
With a heart heavy with sorrow and uplifted by appreciation, we share news of the passing of The Rev. David P. Coon. The longest-serving Headmaster in ‘Iolani School history (1970-92) passed away on Dec. 12. He was 95.
The 2022-23 school year marked the ‘Iolani Math Team’s 30th consecutive state championship. That set a new Hawai‘i state record for the most consecutive state championships by any high school team (academic, athletic or otherwise). The common denominator -- Mr. Michael Park.
“I learn a lot from living with my dorm friends and house parents, and it makes me grow not only as an individual, but also as part of 'One Team.'”
“The ‘Iolani community is very welcoming. The teachers and counselors will help you no matter what. The people here truly believe in the 'One Team' spirit.”
“Our students are appreciative of the education that they receive, are engaged in active classroom learning and are truly a blessing to teach every day.”
