Honolulu Waldorf Student Support
Honolulu Waldorf School is dedicated to helping students reach their individual potential and honors students’ diverse learning styles and ways of being in the world.
Teachers help students discover the joys of learning and to meet challenges with resilience and perseverance. Teachers, students, and families know each other well, and a Class Teacher guides students over many years.
Additional support structures are well-established throughout the school. The members of the Honolulu Waldorf Student Support Team are available to help students academically, socially & emotionally, behaviorally and curatively.
"Each child in every age brings something new into the world… Our proper task as educators is to remove hindrances…"
