All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

My child has been at this school for 4 years now and is excelling in this environment. Her teacher really takes the time to know her and the community is very supporting. The new governance model is improving the quality of the curriculum and supporting the teachers to become even better. I am so excited that Haleakala Waldorf School is now starting a high school and my daughter will be able to continue the Waldorf curriculum right through high school.

I think others should know that this is not an academically strong school. If your child is inquisitive, intellectual or an independent thinker this school will stifle their development. The school could improve if it did not try to impose its system and doctrine across the board .. also beware of wealthy parents who have too much influence in school decisions including which teachers stay or go seemingly at a whim..I think the new academic leadership team has destabilized the school and alienated many. Parents are easily intimidated knowing that if they express concerns their tuition assistance might be cut. Think hard before enrolling your child...

This school is really a sham. It is more of a feel-good New Age entity than true learning facility. The school could improve by stressing learning and life skills for the coming decades rather than spending a lot of time on Hawaiiiiana which is useless..

My child been at the school for 9 years and we have been pretty happy with most aspects. The last two years things have changed - and not for the better. There is a new so-called governance model which strips the teachers of most of their say, and there is a great disconnect between the leadership on the one hand and the teacher-parent-children body on the other. I am no longer comfortable with the direction this school is headed.

It is a profound school that touches the heart and the soul. The teachers are knowledgeable and caring. The children get nurtured and the learning is very deep.

This school offers everything that a parent would want for their kids -- safe and nurturing environment, truly caring administration and staff, teaching staff that live and breathe for their students, an involved community with like minds and goals -- I could go on and on. Children here are cherished, and their childhood is protected so that they need not be rushed into growing up. At the end of their 8 or more year journey at Haleakala they are transformed into WHOLE individuals with the intellect to succeed in a complex world, the empathy and social skills to navigate the perils of high school with confidence, and the skills to create beauty around them which is the ultimate ego boost for their self esteem. Our children are SOOOO happy here. What else do you want for your children?

I just think Haleakala Waldorf school is one of the greatest schools alive. The teachers are amazing and the students learn quickly. I think it is far better than any other school i have looked for. If i had to choose a school right on the spot the first thing that would come to mind would be the Haleakala Waldorf school. Great Thanks! p.s. When I talked to a few students there they said that it was there favorite school out of any other they went to.
