Haleakala Waldorf School
Tel: (808) 878-2511
Haleakala Waldorf School strives through the arts to help Maui's children reach their potential by fostering a love of learning and by developing their intellectual, emotional, physical, and spiritual capacities.
Developed by Rudolf Steiner in 1919, Waldorf education is based on a developmental approach that addresses the needs of the growing child.
Waldorf teachers strive to transform education into an art that educates the whole child---the heart and the hands, as well as the head.
Waldorf Education approaches all aspects of schooling in a unique and comprehensive way.
The curriculum is designed to meet the various stages of child development, and Waldorf teachers are dedicated to creating a genuine inner enthusiasm for learning, that is essential for educational success.
