E komo mai ‘Iolani School Alumni!


The ‘Iolani Alumni Association invites students, families, alumni and friends to campus for the "Grooves & Grindz" summer concert on Saturday, featuring Na Leo Pilimehana, and 'Iolani's own Christian Yrizarry '94.

Please join us in the Center Courtyard at 4:30 p.m. for this annual family-friendly event, which includes keiki activities and food booths. No ticket purchase is necessary. This free event is open to everyone in the 'Iolani community. Food concessions will benefit the 'Iolani boys varsity basketball program and 'Iolani Stage Band. The event is expected to conclude at 8 p.m.

Na Leo Pilimehana, which means "voices blending together in warmth," is the most popular, most award-winning and biggest selling female Hawaiian music group in the world.

Don't miss it! See you there!

As you will see in the video below, graduates of ‘Iolani School return to campus to experience being students again. While they discover that 'Iolani's excellence is being perpetuated, the alumni also learn about the fun, innovative and creative ways the students of today are learning. Alumni also visit the Sullivan Center for Innovation and Leadership where real-world studies take place each day.

"I had some great teachers at ‘Iolani. I wasn’t always the best student, but I remember being challenged and inspired. I also remember my fellow students being really smart and awesome. I was also fortunate to have the opportunity to teach at ‘Iolani for three years with Mr. Roberts. He taught me a lot about being an artist and a teacher. He trusted me and gave me the first opportunity to really be a teacher. Without Dave Roberts, I would not be where I am today."
