Definition funny of Iolani:
Ignore the obviously Punahou-biased definition of Iolani that was previously given. They don't have enough class to present unbiased and objective information. Iolani is one of the top college prepatory schools on the island of Oahu. Punahou is another one of the top schools. but this isn't the place to talk about comparing the two or even discussing the other school, if you want, go to punahou to see their definition. Iolani has a reputation for having very smart students. some are exceptions...but most are decently intelligent and dilligent students. The classes are hard but there are a lot of teachers that really want the students to do well. the downside is that the tuition is expensive and they're stingy as hell with financial aid. Students from Iolani are talented in a variety of fields, not just academics and sports. There are artists, dancers, actors, and skilled musicians and singers as well.
(this really happens in real life) "oh, you're from Iolani? you must be smart, yeah?" College is pretty easy because Iolani's AP courses prepared me well. Several prominent individuals have attended Iolani: former mayor Mufi Hannemann, Chinese political leader Sun Yat Sen, athletes like Dave Shoji and Derrick Low, and even a famous Japanese pop singer Angela Aki.
A school that thinks they're better than Punahou. Truth be told, they are nowhere near as good as Punahou, and can't take it like a man when they lose games to them. The school is located in Oahu. Their school colors are as depressing as the school; red and black.
Guy 1: 'Iolani lost to us again.' Guy 2: 'Haha, I know. They're such sore losers, and can't take a loss.'
