Great Barrington Rudolf Steiner School

  • At the Great Barrington Rudolf Steiner School, education is the beginning of a lifetime voyage of discovery.
  • Mr. Sagrin at Blackboard. We are committed to offering our students a rigorous classical education in preparation for the most demanding high schools and colleges.
  • Meeting students at each stage of their development, our curriculum fully integrates the fine and practical arts with the sciences, mathematics, literature, and the study of our cultural heritage – from its foundations in myth and legend to the study of modern history.
  • The Great Barrington Rudolf Steiner School strives to lead children to a balanced development of clear and precise thinking, a rich and healthy emotional life, and a developed power of will.
  • This will allow children to worthily apply their thoughts, feelings and actions to practical challenges in the world.
  • To achieve this goal each teacher works artistically with a curriculum that integrates the arts, humanities and sciences in a manner compatible with human developmental stages as explained by Rudolf Steiner.
  • An understanding of these developmental requirements helps teachers form lessons that enliven students' imaginations and enhance their ability to establish moral relationships to the world.
