Honolulu Waldorf School:
The Honolulu Waldorf School (HWS), located on the island of Oahu in the State of Hawaii, is a coeducational, independent school offering Pre-K through twelfth grade programs.

Co-Educational Programs from Pre-K through Grade 12:
Honolulu Waldorf School offers a full academic program, with mandatory foreign languages beginning in Grade 1. Fine and applied arts, music, movement, and drama are a daily part of each child's experience. Community service commitments build from smaller projects for lower school students, to required hours of service to the school and the great community in the high school years. High school foreign exchange programs are encouraged and arranged. The school produces graduates who are academically advantaged, and who consistently gain admission to top universities.
The Parent/Child program supports the wonders and exploration of the first years of life in a warm, nurturing and lively atmosphere. Together we explore the joys and challenges of raising and caring for a young child.
Grades One through Eight:
The students in the grade school, grades one through eight, are guided by their class teacher who brings a daily two-hour morning lesson of the academic subjects, including language arts, math, social studies, history, geography, and the sciences. The students' day is rounded out with subject lessons taught by special subjects teachers. These lessons include Japanese, Spanish, music, games and P.E., hula, folk dancing, gardening, painting, drawing, sculpture, knitting, sewing, and wood working. Every subject contributes to the development of a well-balanced individual.
High School - Grades 9 through 12:
The Honolulu Waldorf High School offers a rigorous and challenging program that integrates the arts, humanities, and sciences. Based on Rudolf Steiner’s insights into the needs of the developing adolescent, the curriculum balances the academic, artistic, practical and social needs of each student. Whenever possible, experience of the phenomena itself is the starting point; original sources rather than textbooks are preferred for study in the Humanities, and direct observation in the sciences. From there a theoretical understanding is developed, thereby fostering a personal and meaningful relationship with knowledge.
