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.
