Waldorf students are provided with a classical education that introduces reading, writing, mathematics, literature, and the sciences in a developmentally thoughtful way. In the lower grades, we help children see the beauty in the world as part of a holistic education. In the early grades, we nurture students’ strong imaginations and blossoming intellectual capacities through experiential and artistic means.
Our comprehensive curriculum is carefully considered to inspire learning and understanding. The students develop lesson books for each subject filled with rich self-expression and academic content. In their work, students are encouraged to internalize each lesson and make it their own. The integration of the arts in the curriculum builds creativity in thinking. The imagination is continually nurtured, as is the capacity to meet the challenges of learning.
We strive to support our grade school students in unfolding their emotional lives by nurturing their growing sensitivities through every step of our curriculum. We do not simply teach students a set of facts they will need for high school; we help each child to develop a set of skills specific to their individual experience. Then when transitioning to high school, our students excel in their programs whether they continue with Waldorf or move on to an alternate independent school or the public system.
