School Notes:

Waldorf education is based on the pedagogical insights of Rudolf Steiner, his corresponding views of the stages of human development, and the ongoing research of the international Waldorf Movement. Working from the ideals of Waldorf Education, TCWS highly values the uniqueness of each individual and their contribution to the positive development of society. Through a broad, rich, and unique curriculum, we develop our students to their fullest potential - spiritually, ethically, intellectually, socially, and physically – while inspiring a life-long love for learning.
