General School Mission

"The mission of the Taos Country Day School is to implement an educational program
based on the philosophy of Rudolph Steiner that emphasizes the balanced integration of
the thinking, willing, and feeling nature of the child. Through the integration of these
three realms, Waldorf education endeavors to create harmony within the individual,
which allows for the development of free human beings who are able to meet the
challenges of their lives and times. We encourage respect and understanding for all
cultures and the natural environment. The school provides a non-competitive, physically
and emotionally safe learning atmosphere and encourages community involvement.
The Taos Country Day School provides early childhood, elementary, and middle school
programs in a setting that fosters the development of an involved parent body."
