A rich, multidimensional education.

Waldorf education offers a developmentally appropriate, experiential, and academically rigorous approach to learning. At the Rudolf Steiner School, we integrate the arts in all academic disciplines for children from preschool through twelfth grade to create a comprehensive educational experience.

Inspired Students

Our students have assimilated information as opposed to memorizing isolated facts; they are flexible, creative and willing to take intellectual risks; they are passionate leaders who take the initiative and strive for high ethical and moral standards while working to reach their goals.

Our Programs

The Rudolf Steiner School curriculum uniquely addresses children’s changing needs as they advance, step-by-step—from the beginning of their journey in early childhood through high school graduation.

In the earliest years our children learn primarily by imitation and activity, and our programs use exploration and play as the foundation for independent thought and creative thinking. Using large, sunny classrooms and the outdoors, children explore the beauty that surrounds them, planting seeds of imagination, creativity, and confidence.

In grade school (1-8) the class teacher travels with the children each year, developing a close relationship not only with each child, but the class as a social organism. The class teacher guides the students through the morning Main Lesson, a two-hour class period dedicated to a rotating schedule of English, Math, history, and the sciences. Storytelling and art are employed as teaching vehicles as students develop core academic skills through collaborative problem-solving. As the students advance, their education is enriched by specialty teachers in German and Spanish, vocal and instrumental music, physical education, handwork, woodwork and eurhythmy.

In grades 9-12, students meet expert teachers in mathematics, humanities, sciences and the arts. These subject specialists lead the students through a rich array of courses. Our graduates are truly independent thinkers who are well-prepared for college: they become sought-after college students, award-winning musicians, scientists, outdoorsmen caring for the environment, and human beings who care deeply and are deeply interested in the world around them.

A Rudolf Steiner student has the ability to integrate thinking; to assimilate information as opposed to memorizing isolated facts; to be flexible, creative and willing to take intellectual risks; and are leaders with high ethical and moral standards who take initiative and are passionate to reach their goals.
