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.

Travel a bit further to Montreal in Quebec, Canada, for a weekend with an international feel.

HMS is accredited by AWSNA, WECAN, and NEASC.
