High Mowing School is home to over 330 preschool–grade 12 day and boarding students. We are committed to fostering a caring, respectful, and diverse community where academic success, personal growth, and social responsibility are highly valued and fostered.
In 2017, Pine Hill Waldorf School merged with High Mowing School, creating a thriving, integrated preschool–12 school that offers students, families, and teachers more opportunities. This year, HMS has returned to its full pre-pandemic festivals and events, supporting a strong community life. The renewed Parent Association is actively leading an engaged parent body interested in supporting teachers and families.
HMS is centrally set on a hilltop among rolling farmland in scenic southern New Hampshire on 300+ acres. The Town of Wilton is only 1-3 hours away from a variety of experiences in any direction — the big city in Boston, MA; camping and incredible foliage in central NH; the charming New England seacoast in Portland, ME, or Cape Cod, MA; or great skiing and shopping in Burlington, VT. Travel a bit further to Montreal in Quebec, Canada, for a weekend with an international feel.
Southern NH is home to many anthroposophical pursuits: our next door neighbor is the Temple-Wilton Community Farm, a long-established biodynamic CSA; the Center for Anthroposophy and NH Anthroposophical Society hold many educational and community opportunities; there are two local lifesharing communities and a variety of alternative health providers.
HMS is accredited by AWSNA, WECAN, and NEASC.
Interested candidates should email Allison Pelletier, Dean of Students at email@example.com with a resume, letter of interest, and an HMS Employment Application. More Information on HMS website. HMS will respond to qualified candidates only.
