General School Mission

"Our Mission is to educate the whole child -- mind, body and spirit -- through a time-tested curriculum that balances academic subjects with artistic and practical activities, based on the developmental stages of the child.
Our students are nurtured through:
• a Waldorf curriculum
• inspiring environments
• Waldorf-rained teachers
• committed, active parents
Teachers are the heart of our school. Their profound reverence for each child as a unique human being draws out the student's inherent curiosity and love of learning.

The outcome is that our students unfold their innate capacities, balancing:
• creativity, with a mastery of analytical and critical thinking
• courage, with appreciation and wonder for the beauty and mysteries of the world
• confidence and self-esteem, with self-discipline and the ability to impart purpose to their lives.
