The goal of the outstanding education offered at HWS is the realization of responsible human freedom.
HWS strives to provide an education that fosters in each child a sense of meaning and purpose in life, and the confidence to meet his or her individual destiny.
We recognize and welcome the unique gifts brought by each child we serve.
We are committed to supporting each child in his or her intellectual, physical, emotional, and spiritual development by offering a will-based curriculum that integrates academic, practical, experiential, and artistic work.
We are inspired and guided in our work by the educational and spiritual insights of Rudolf Steiner and the continually growing body of research in anthroposophy, which maintains that the highest goal of education is the realization of responsible human freedom.

School Reviews

We obviously love this school since we have been here since Gr. 1 and will enter Gr 7 in the fall. The rich and fascinating curriculum is well-rounded and something our child will hold for the rest of his life. He is learning to find his life path and how he is connected to the rest of the world. Our experience has been that the smaller class size has made it easy to come together and foster the feeling of family. In today's busy hustle and bustle world it is truly a blessing to find a place that intentionally slows down so our children can experience an unhurried and less stressful upbringing so they can grow into the world and learn to create a more peaceful and cherished future.
