Academic freedom is a hallmark of Steiner schools so much so that they are also commonly described as “faculty-run schools”. Steiner schools are also typically managed by teachers and parents from the very communities they provide for. MWSI has gone even a step further by making all parents and teachers “owners” of the school – they are all legal Members of the corporation until they leave the school.

The school has three primary organizations: the Board of Trustees (BOT), the College of Teachers (COT), and the Stewards.

The Board of Trustees (BOT) is the governing body of MWS. It is the highest policy making body of the school and provides oversight across all the school’s operations. The board is composed of ten (10) members, three (3) of which come from the school faculty.

The College of Teachers serves as the school’s spiritual carrier and is composed of all permanent faculty members. Together with the Administration Office, it also manages the general day-to-day operations of the school.

The Stewards serves as guardians of the pedagogy and philosophical foundations of the school. While they do not exercise any corporate powers, they provide spiritual and moral guidance to the BOT and COT and are highly respected by the school community.
