Cooperation - Children in all grades learn to work together to accomplish tasks they could not do on their own.
Our annual Michaelmas Festival includes a dragon chase (8th graders in costume), singing and field games.
Students experience movement classes throughout the week which help them become more aware of their bodies, while promoting teamwork and cooperation. These classes are tied directly to the academic curriculum so students can take their lessons into their bodies and limbs.
Our Spanish teacher enjoying our annual Holiday Fair with her daughter. The Fair features an artists market, live music, puppet show, and children's activities, including jump rope machines and candle-dipping. Don't miss it!
Morning Garden is a special gathering where children (1 to 3 years) and their parents, guided by a Waldorf teacher, enjoy a rhythmic morning of songs, movement, handwork, snack, and conversation. Parents learn from each other, sharing life experiences and insights, while modeling for the children the joy of meaningful activity. The program is offered Thursday, Friday and Saturday mornings.
The middle school sports program includes volleyball, basketball, soccer, track and field, and tennis. Archery, fencing and 'Play-Ball' are available for younger students.
Music is an essential part of the Waldorf curriculum. Beginning with the singing of songs that mark the rhythm of the day in kindergarten to learning to play the recorder in first grade, music is integrated into the program at all levels. Music increases a child's capacity for learning and also contributes to a sense of connectedness.
The Waldorf School of Atlanta provides a strong academic, arts-integrated, developmentally attuned curriculum based on the philosophy of educational pioneer Dr. Rudolf Steiner.
Established in 1986, the school offers preschool through middle school classes, and is one of more than 800 Waldorf schools worldwide.
Learning at The Waldorf School is a vital and dynamic process, permeated with the power of imagination and working with the intellectual, spiritual, emotional and physical development of the individual within the social context. Innovative teaching methods and a rich classical curriculum provide the foundation for a lifelong love of learning.
