School Notes:

The Waldorf School of Baltimore offers a finely tuned, proven educational program for Pre-K - Grade 8 that carries students along a continuous developmental path to produce young adults with distinctive self –possession and an inner focus they bring to their life and work. The curriculum is unique—it nurtures each student’s intellectual, social, physical, and emotional needs by introducing concepts and techniques at specific developmental stages, when students can best assimilate them.  Waldorf focuses its pedagogy on teaching students how to live with confidence in the world. Students learn that knowledge -- be it in math, science, literature, art, or a foreign language -- provides tools for enhancing their lives and the lives of their communities.  

One of the characteristics of a Waldorf education is the incorporation of practical real-world contexts into lessons. For example, math is not viewed simply as an abstract discipline, but as a tool for discovery and problem solving. Great literature, visual art, music, and movement, are a part of the developmental curriculum from the earliest grades onward.  The curriculum is connected to the world, and students practice what they learn through field trips, activities, and community events.
