Waldorf High School Of Massachusetts Bay

Tel: (617)489-6600
Grades: 9-12 | 53 students
Waldorf High School of Massachusetts Bay is a private day school for grades 9-12 in Belmont, Massachusetts, near Boston.
Waldorf High School students have a passion for learning and exploring.
They are more interested in depth than acceleration, in collaboration than competition.
They are each on a path of their own making toward remarkable lives.
Our faculty has an equal passion for teaching and supporting teenagers as they develop into flexible, confident thinkers who address life's big questions with creativity and optimism.
We believe that Waldorf education is uniquely suited to the journey of the adolescent.
The task of teenagers is to discover their individual strengths, their unexpected passions, and their lifelong directions.
Because learning at Waldorf always occurs on multiple levels in the classroom and out in the world, with hands and eyes, through art, music, and travel as much as reading, writing, and discussion--our students have an unlimited canvas on which to sketch their identities and envision their futures.

School Reviews

I have two children who had not attended Waldorf schools previously and who are attending this high school. They are both thrilled with it. The school has created a very warm community environment, and overall the other students are really nice. The teachers are excellent, and my teens find the curriculum interesting and sufficiently challenging. I feel really lucky that we found a high school that emphasizes good values (meaningful community service every year, no bullying, etc.) and where both of my children could flourish. I can''t say enough good things about this school!

I have two students at this school. This is a warm community, with interesting academics and wonderful teachers who really get to know and care about each student. I was not sure initially if my kids would like it because they had not been at a Waldorf school previously, but that ultimately did not make any different. There is quite a diverse mix of students. The sports are accessible to everyone who wants to get involved, whether or not they are good athletes. The academics can be challenging for those who want challenge, and there is also extra help available for students who need it, I see a lot of happy teens at this little Waldorf High School, which I definitely do not see at a lot of other schools!
