Founded in 1942, High Mowing School (HMS) is an accredited Waldorf co-educational school serving day and boarding students in Wilton, New Hampshire. High Mowing School is a place for young adults to grow intellectually, artistically, and socially while living and learning with students from across town and around the world. High Mowing School - a quality boarding school for girls and boys in the USA - recognizes every student’s potential, stirs their passions, nurtures their innate human sympathies, and helps them develop their intellectual, artistic, and physical capacities.


At High Mowing School talented and experienced teachers draw on the wisdom of Waldorf education, and nurture the interests of today’s young people. Waldorf Education brings age-appropriate content and methods to each stage of a child's development. The Waldorf approach recognizes human beings as three-fold in nature—consisting of a mind, spirit, and body—and educates that entire being in preparation for a life of meaning and purpose. By meeting the students where they are in their journey, and by infusing art into every academic setting and incorporating music and movement into the broader curriculum, the Waldorf approach offers a holistic, compassionate education for the 21st century.

High Mowing School offers an experiential and vigorous program of arts-infused academics within a small and friendly school community, where young people and adults have the opportunity to form authentic and meaningful relationships. HMS provides a complete program of humanities, math, science, world languages, fine, practical and performing arts, diverse movement education and individual interest electives — all immersed in and surrounded by nature.
