School Notes:

The Waldorf approach works with human nature and recognizes that capacities emerge in students at fairly predictable stages, while also allowing room for individual rates of maturation. This appreciation for the metamorphosis of comprehension underlies both the organization of the curriculum itself and the changing methods of teaching throughout the grades.For the Waldorf student, music, dance and theater, writing, literature, legends and myths are not simply subjects to be read about, ingested and tested — they are experienced. Through these experiences, Waldorf students cultivate a lifelong love of learning as well as the intellectual, emotional, physical and spiritual capacities to be individuals certain of their paths and to be of service to the world. Waldorf teachers strive to transform education into an art that educates the whole child: The heart and the hands, as well as the head.
