At Haleakalā Waldorf School, returning to in-person classes for all programs this fall is the primary goal. The school is also committed to providing families with a high-quality program regardless of whether they are on or off-campus.
Social connection is critical for our children in terms of their emotional health and well being. The Waldorf program utilizes relationship-based, experiential, and artistically engaging methods to convey the curriculum in ways that bring the subject matter into the hearts as well as the minds of students. Education in this way has the potential to activate, engage, and empower students.
Research shows that online learning is also most effective when there is a relationship between student and teacher. Waldorf teachers are uniquely prepared to overcome the limitations of distance learning with their humanity and personal warmth. Even online, it’s still all about human hearts connecting. Waldorf teachers are also trained to understand how curriculum can be used as a healing force in traumatic times such as an active pandemic.
Each of us understands the complexities and challenges involved in the attempt to plan for the unknown. Today’s world, however, demands this adaptability at an unprecedented level. Haleakalā Waldorf School is focused on nourishing the amazing brilliance, imagination, adaptability, creativity and morality our young people will need moving ahead. Haleakalā Waldorf School recognizes that our children, and the millions of others in their generation, are the young people who will guide the future of mankind and life on earth into the future—indeed, they have already started doing it.
