Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"What sets the Waldorf curriculum apart is not necessarily what is taught but how it is taught. True learning is a process of discovery that engages the whole human being. Instead of passively receiving information, Waldorf students are involved in a dynamic process of exploration, both of the world and of themselves.

Waldorf education strengthens the child to meet not only the challenges of school but also of life. To face their futures with confidence, students need to develop a capacity for clear thinking, emotional stability, intellectual flexibility, and moral values. The goal is to help all students develop a balanced capacity for both thinking and feeling, so that they are prepared with self-confidence and inner resources to accept responsibility and take their places as creative, self-directed members of society
