Waldorf pedagogy leads students to engage with the curriculum on many levels. The class teacher travels with the students in grades 1-8 as guide, mentor, and figure of authority. Lessons balance cognitive and emotional intelligence with physical activity where each assignment integrates academic work with fine and practical arts.

In the Upper School we foster independent thinking, creative problem solving, and a sense of confidence, which equips students for future challenges. It is a curriculum that stresses practical knowledge and creativity. Our graduates integrate thinking; assimilate information as opposed to memorizing isolated facts; are flexible, creative, and willing to take intellectual risks. Waldorf graduates are passionate about achieving their goals, and are highly sought after in higher education.
