Rudolf Steiner’s study of developmental psychology elaborates on a significant change toward the end of a child’s tenth year. There is an awakening to a new sense of self and a concurrent change in the relationship with the environment.

Our curriculum therefore calls for the introduction of natural science and history. As these subjects are introduced in an age appropriate manner, the students also gain an ever greater degree of autonomy in their work. Emphasis is placed on developing good habits with regard to homework and music practice.

This “second phase” of the elementary school grows organically out of the first three years.
