The Waldorf curriculum for the grades balances academics and arts.
From number songs and letter stories in the first grade to chemistry experiments and Shakespeare productions in the eighth grade, students develop attitudes that will serve them throughout life: love of learning, satisfaction with true achievement, courage to question, and an active interest in and concern for others.
