High School Teachers

Halton Waldorf School is actively exploring the possibility of extending our program to include high school grades 9 to 12. We envision beginning with an initial grade 9 or a combined grade 9/10 class in September 2018.

At this time we are looking to connect with teachers who are interested in joining this initiative with the intention of becoming founding teachers, and to provide guidance and expertise as we shape this new endeavour.

Our school was founded in 1984, and is situated in Burlington, Ontario close to the vibrant, multi-cultural city of Toronto, beautiful conservation and nature areas, and several Waldorf Schools.

We invite you to connect with one of the members of our ‘High School Explorer Group’ to learn more about our school, the community and our hopes to offer a full Waldorf Education to young people in the Burlington area.
