River Song Waldorf School provides a co-operative revolution in human education for Northern Colorado since 1989.
River Song students learn to work together to create excellence in content and beauty in whatever they seek to accomplish.
The aim of Waldorf schooling is to educate the whole child, "head, heart and hands".
The curriculum is as broad as time will allow, and balances academics subjects with artistic and practical activities.
Waldorf teachers are dedicated to creating a genuine love of learning within each child.
By freely using arts and activities in the service of teaching academics, an internal motivation to learn is developed in the students, doing away with the need for competitive testing and grading.
We educate children so that all their concepts are capable of growth, that their concepts and will impulses are really alive.
This is not easy.
But an artistic education succeeds in doing it.
