Haleakala Waldorf School


Haleakala Waldorf School is located on two campuses: the early childhood classes and grades 1-8 are on the Kealahou campus 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. The Kaluanui High School campus is located on the beautiful grounds of the HUI No'eau art institute.

Founded in 1972, Haleakala Waldorf School's enrollment is approaching 300 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 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.

HWS offers a generous compensation package that includes a competitive salary; medical, dental, drug, and vision coverage; a retirement plan; a tuition remission program; and a professional development program.
