Waldorf education meets the whole child--head, heart and hands.
We take a developmental approach -- the right subjects, in the right way, at the right time.
Learning is experiential, artistic, engaging.
We believe that questions are more important than answers and that all learning grows out of meaningful relationships.
In addition to a rigorous academic program, all students take Russian, Spanish, handwork and woodworking, violin, recorder, chorus, Eurythmy (movement) and organized games.

5.0 Stars   05/01/12
High quality academics fueled by teachers who truly care about each child and celebrate each unique spirit in a way that allows confidence to flourish and creativity to flow.The parent community is awesome, the staff has to the best anywhere, but the most incredible part of this school is the kids. It is truly inspiring to witness what a child is capable of when allowed to develop in this kind of environment.
