High School

High school begins with an orientation week that includes valuable time together with classmates. School life includes clubs, athletic teams, performances, and lectures. Each class works collectively on community service projects as well—food banks, shelters, children’s services, hospice, restoration projects—with the goal of integrating service not only into a student’s high school experience but throughout their lives. Lunch time is on-campus, together with classmates and teachers, until mid-year when a day of off-campus lunch is available each week.

Faculty advisors stay with a class through high school; each student also has an individual advisor.

"I created a brushless electric motor that also functioned as a generator. The motor used a Hall effect sensor to sense the position of the magnet and a transistor to apply currents to the electromagnets at the correct times."

 “Teachers hear from graduating seniors about their education and their plans, as well as ways for making our school stronger. Our students are always incredibly articulate, honest, and thoughtful in the wisdom they share. The education inspires thinking, feeling, and independent young adults.”

I was in a place of exploration / so open and undiscovered that / 
It made me feel limitless.

“Nature has always been a big part of my life. The school has taught me everything from what we can do to save the planet to how to safely adventure in the great outdoors, and for that I am so grateful.”

“Sometimes I stop and I think and I wonder: How lucky am I to be able to travel, and not simply just travel, but be able to immerse myself in a culture, meet young people like me, and bring people the gift of eurythmy.”

"We read The God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy. The class was small and we were able to study the book together really carefully, which was so meaningful to all of us.”

Teacher Joshua Stoll talks to students during Main Lesson.

“I am fueled by the way teenagers become fascinated by ideas—and by the philosophical implications and real-world consequences of those ideas. Of course, they continue to be intrigued by great stories, but now they have the capacity to consider the broader contexts of those stories. These are the sorts of questions that have engaged me throughout my academic career, and I get a thrill out of helping my students grapple with them, often for the first time, in sophisticated ways."

"The process of teaching science in Waldorf schools is much closer to the process of doing research than to the way science had been taught to me in high school. When one faces new territory in science it is important to keep an open mind to what nature is trying to tell you. New concepts are created out of a process of observation of phenomena in order to discover and formulate the so-called physical laws."
