Mission Statement

At Honolulu Waldorf School, we educate each child to find meaning, passion, and purpose in life
and to contribute to the creation of a better world for all. Through a curriculum based
on the developmental stages of the human being and on the integration of art and academics,
our children learn to meet the world
with clear and creative thinking,
compassion and moral strength,
and with the courage and freedom to act.


Learning at Honolulu Waldorf School:

  • Is Experiential

  • Aligns with Developmentally-Based milestones

  • Is Holistic

  • Provides Community and Aloha for students and families



Honolulu Waldorf School is unlike any other school on Oahu.

As a student at HWS, your children will learn to know who they truly are. They will grow toward self-assurance, using their imaginative and critical thinking capacities to become creative problem solvers.

We are truly preparing global citizens for today and tomorrow.
