Integrity, compassion, and respect are woven not only into the Waldorf curriculum but into he foundation of the community as a whole.

My family and I have been members of the Haleakala Waldorf community for nearly 7 years. All of us – we as parents, as well as our kids – have felt incredibly fortunate to have had the opportunity to experience this amazing school. Waldorf students emerge richer, wiser, healthier young adults, more ready for the daunting challenges of today’s world, than we ever could have imagined. They have an evident abundance of creative insight, of confidence, and of academic, spiritual and aesthetic resources available within themselves, all of which seems so rare in young adults these days. Waldorf education is entirely worth every measure of cost it entails. We see the proof of the wisdom of Waldorf education clearly visible in the young adults who graduate each year ready and excited to meet the challenges of their lives with an array of powers we non-Waldorf educated parents can only marvel at.


Handles bullying effectively: Strongly agree


- a
The HWS students are more of a family that just a random group of children thrown together. Students are given tools to work through problems, processes to bring their issues, and adults to support them along the way.

Supports LD students: Agree


- a
HWS is instituting a method for remedial testing to catch any learning challenges that a student may have.

Effective school leaders: Strongly agree


- a
We have a wonderful Administrator who is new to our school this year and she brings a beautiful balance of practical Administration skills and a strong Waldorf Pedagogy to our school.


Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
I am so grateful for my children's Waldorf teachers. they are an extension of my family. We are both on the same team working for the education and personal development of my children.

Amount of homework: Strongly agree


- a
Homework is developmentally appropriate for each grade. The amount of work increases as the student gets older. Never too much however that the kids are not allowed to be kids!

Handles bullying effectively: Strongly disagree


- a
Favoritism blinds the school to major issues


Supports LD students: Strongly disagree


- a
Forget it, if your kid doesn't fall into line, with no extra help, they will be labeled

Effective school leaders: Strongly disagree


- a
Not there when you want to talk, or problem solve
