Life at Waldorf
Imagination is more than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, while imagination embraces the entire world to all we know and understand.

A year at the Honolulu Waldorf School is filled with a wide range of activities. Many of our seasonal activities and celebrations are common to all Waldorf schools, but there are a few that are specific to being in Hawaii. We feel that the ceremonies and rituals associated with the festivals celebrated in Waldorf schools around the world help to reveal a deeper significance in many everyday occurrences. The living rhythms of the year, taken up in each class in different ways, help provide a common foundation for our students.

The Honolulu Waldorf School also offers a variety of extracurricular clubs and activities both Lower, Middle, and High School students. There’s something for all students to explore to fulfill their personal interests and to enrich their experience at our school.

Students in Grades 1 through 12 have plenty of opportunity to engage in after school activities on both campuses including the popular Circus Arts Club for Grades 4-8, High School Student Council, Drama Club, Surf Club, Spanish Club, Integrated Fighting (IF) Club, and Community Service Club, to name a few. Additionally, there is a National Honor Society Club and a Yearbook Club. Private and group lessons in violin, viola, cello, and band instruments are also held on campus. These extracurricular programs support and enhance the students’ work and activities in and outside of the classroom.

Off-campus, students in Grades 7 and 8 are eligible to participate in Interscholastic League of Honolulu (ILH) Intermediate level athletics in soccer, basketball, wrestling, canoe paddling, and swimming.

Our annual rhythms are also punctuated by fundraising events that connect us to the broader community while also supporting the school in important ways.
