‘Iolani School is a co-educational, college preparatory school for grades K - 12 founded upon Christian principles. Its mission is to develop liberally educated, well-rounded individuals who are well prepared for higher education and for responsible moral citizenship.
Faculty, Administration, and Board of Governors
At the heart of ‘Iolani’s success is its talented and dedicated faculty - a veteran group with an average of 18 years of service to the school. Seventy percent of the faculty hold advanced degrees, and continuing professional development is supported through a variety of study allowances, grants, and sabbaticals. The faculty culture is strongly participatory, with teacher expecting to be respected, consulted, and heard. Opportunities for faculty to also serve as part-time athletic coaches are available. Faculty salaries are competitive and include a provision to reward master teachers. One-quarter of this veteran faculty ranks at the top of the 30-step salary scale. Benefits include medical and dental coverage, a 10 percent TIAA-CREFF match (with a mandatory 5 percent employee contribution), and 100 percent tuition remission for one child at a time. A senior administration team, including a Dean of Upper School and Dean of Lower School, reports directly to the Head of School. Department Chairs oversee the curriculum in grades 7 - 12. The Head of School makes the final decisions regarding faculty hiring, with significant input from the Department Chairs and Division Deans. The Head reports to the 22-member Board of Governors, a dedicated and talented group that is well organized, efficient, and appropriately involved at strategic and fiduciary levels. Board members each possess valued skills and insights.
