Grades: PK - 12 | 255 students
As a Waldorf school, the curriculum is based on the ideas of Austrian philosopher Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925).
Fundamental to Waldorf education is the recognition that each human being is a unique individual who passes through distinct life stages and that it is the responsibility of education to address the emotional, physical, social and spiritual needs of each developmental stage.
While independent, Merriconeag is part of a worldwide Waldorf school movement that encompasses more than 1,000 schools and 1,600 early childhood programs on five continents.
The school is a full member of the Association of Waldorf Schools of North America (AWSNA).
