School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Waldorf

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Waldorf schools flourish throughout the world. Springing from the philosophy of Austrian-born philosopher and scientist Rudolf Steiner, they approach education by recognizing each child as a creative individual.

Focused on each student¹s developmental needs and capacities, the Waldorf concept integrates the arts, music, movement, crafts, and drama with the disciplines of science, humanities, math, and technology. Skilled teachers fire imagination and enthusiasm by bringing subjects to life through spirited, artistic presentations.

Elegant in its simplicity, the Waldorf philosophy educates the whole child by:
Stimulating the mind
Schooling the hands
Engaging the heart with a sense of caring and responsibility
Encouraging respect for humanity and a reverence for nature
Fostering an enduring love of learning
Creating a close community of students, teachers, and parents
