High Mowing School is the first Waldorf high school to be founded in North America and the only one to offer a boarding program.
Here on Abbot Hill there is a rich educational and social community that, over the last seven decades, has developed, changed and adjusted to meet the needs of the students, offering teenagers a unique combination of Waldorf education and community living. We are a small, friendly community of students and faculty living and learning together in an inspiring and comfortable setting. Each student, day student as well as boarder, and each teacher is an active part of this community.
In addition to a full compliment of academics, students take up art (ceramics, drawing, painting, stained glass, filmmaking, photography), music (chorus, jazz band, music ensembles or Sinfonietta—a performance chamber orchestra) and theater (drama classes, class plays and all-school plays). At the end of the day, they may choose to engage in competitive sports teams—soccer, cross country running, basketball, baseball or lacrosse. They also have the option for activities such as rock climbing, downhill and cross country skiing, snow boarding, Salsa dancing, intramural games and yoga.
