How do Waldorf students fare after graduation? How many of them go to college? What subjects do they choose to major in at college? Do they feel that their Waldorf education prepared them well for post-secondary studies? Did we, in fact, prepare them well for college? And then what? What do they do next? What professions do they choose for themselves? What kind of lives do they tend to live? How are they doing financially? How is there health? And are they—if we may dare ask—, at the end of the day, happy?
We have the Michaelmas festival in September: the image of Michael is one of hope and courage that helps us remember that when we unite together, we can overcome things that we cannot possibly do on our own.
It has been almost a month since we returned to school. Looking back at those early September days, we recall saying goodbye to our most dear summer memories while reflecting upon the new daily rhythm.
The beginning of the school year is always full of expectation and new challenges.
Learning through doing is a hallmark of Waldorf Education; caring for the earth is another. Join us, this Tuesday May 25th @ 7PM for an Online presentation about our Farm Program with Hawthorne Valley.
Amidst so much uncertainty in our world, our elementary school students were able to come together and realize a space to create and spend time with one another every Friday afternoon. Writing Club first met in May of 2020, with a small group of third grade students. Together, the club created the first publication of the Steiner Times––our very own newspaper.
Our woodwork program has shown a great amount of flexibility in creating projects that have shifted from going to the wood shop to working in the classroom.
Through music we refine the capacity to connect. To harmonize. To resolve dissonance. To heal. To think. To feel. To mature.
The reason we teach music, however, goes much deeper than simply accessing the performing arts. What is it about music that is not only essential but, even more deeply, a defining human experience?
The Chemistry block is designed to open up to the students of the 7th grade the wonders of chemistry. We take a journey into the nature of matter and use our knowledge to build a connected picture of Earth from the sub-microscopic to the global.
