Private Boarding School
High Mowing is the only Waldorf boarding and day high school. It offers a four year Waldorf core curriculum. Waldorf Education brings age-appropriate content and methods to each stage of a student's development. 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.
In addition to the Four-Year Core program, High Mowing’s Signature Programs focus on activity which is uniquely human: understanding the interaction between human beings and nature in the forests and wilderness in High Mowing’s Naturalist Program; witnessing and participating in the transformation of the natural world in the fields and gardens in High Mowing’s Horticulture Program; and growing as creative and performing artists in High Mowings art studios, stages, and kitchen.
At High Mowing we offer an arts-infused, arts-rich curriculum, immersed in and surrounded by nature, which enables our students to find their passions and gives them the tools they need to take them into the world — to college and beyond. Our graduates are confident, creative individuals pursuing their passions and making the world a better place.
Dormitories and Student Residences
Starting with a desk, a raised twin bed, a dresser, and closet, students fashion their rooms to reflect their own personalities. In each dorm, students gather in the common space to hang out, play instruments or enjoy a game of pool. Each wing in the dorm has its own bathroom, with private showers and toilets. Dorm rooms may be shared or private, depending on a number of factors. Seniors have their own rooms, unless they choose otherwise.
High Mowing School is located in the southern New Hampshire town of Wilton, between Nashua and Keene. It is about 1.5 hours northwest of Boston and 45 minutes southwest of Manchester.
