Haleakala Waldorf School is located in Upcountry Kula, Maui, a rural plantation-era campus of five acres on the gentle slope of Mt. Haleakala, surrounded by nearby green pastures. Biodynamic gardens, a large amphitheatre, and sweeping bi-coastal ocean views grace the historic wooden green buildings with large lanais and red roofs. Although Kula is a rural, country town, it is located only 25 minutes from the renowned Maui Arts and Cultural Center. At an elevation of 2500 feet, it is cool in the winter but easily accessible to the island’s warm, sandy beaches.
Founded in 1972, Haleakala Waldorf School serves students and their families from infancy through the eighth grade, with a total of 260 students. Haleakala Waldorf School was the first Waldorf school to receive a triple crown of accreditation from the Western Association of Schools and Colleges, the Association of Waldorf Schools of North American, and the Hawaii Association of Independent Schools. The school offers significant support to its class teachers through its extensive specialist program as well as its strong administration.
The host Hawaiian culture thrives at Haleakala Waldorf School, with its students well versed in ancient chants and protocol, as well as beloved songs of the islands. Festivals are strong, communal events, with experienced trained teachers leading the way. Families often build their lives around the activities of the school, socializing together as well as contributing to their children’s education.
