- Waldorf education is the fastest-growing non-denominational educational movement in the world. There are Waldorf schools on every continent. Waldorf education works in the suburbs of Stockholm; the thriving cities of Brazil; the townships of South Africa; and in the ancient cities of Japan. It works here in Ann Arbor, too.
- Waldorf education works because it is based on profound insight into the needs and capacities of young children, elementary pupils, and high school students. Founded in 1919, Waldorf schools today seem more contemporary than ever. Theme-based education, block scheduling, teaching to different learning styles, moral education, and `looping` have all been part of the Waldorf curriculum since the first school was founded.
- Our kindergartens give young children the opportunity to work joyfully and play imaginatively within a secure and beautiful environment. Our loving, experienced teachers know the importance of rich sensory experiences, walks in nature, hard work, and joyful festivals.
- Grades teachers move with their classes through at least Grade 5. They come to know their students intimately, and they are able to unify the entire primary academic curriculum. In addition, special subject teachers introduce the children to a wide array of disciplines: Spanish, German, orchestra, woodworking, handwork, eurythmy, singing, physical education, and the arts. Academic concepts are presented through stories, drama, music, and movement. This kind of artistic presentation reaches children with many different learning styles.
- High school students need academic rigor, opportunities for self-expression, and a community. Every student studies nearly every subject, all of which are taught by specialists. Students discover new capacities and talents within themselves; their self-confidence allows them to relate to their teachers and to each other in an open, tolerant environment.Professors who have taught Waldorf students across many academic disciplines and across a wide range of campuses-from State Universities to Ivy League-note that Waldorf graduates have the ability to integrate thinking; to assimilate information as opposed to memorizing isolated facts; to be flexible, creative and willing to take intellectual risks; and are leaders with high ethical and moral standards who take initiative and are passionate to reach their goals. Waldorf graduates are highly sought after in higher education.
- At Rudolf Steiner School of Ann Arbor computers are not part of the early grades curriculum, although mechanical technology and the practical arts are incorporated at all levels. During the middle school years students are introduced to appropriate technology, including computers and the internet, and an after-school robotics club is offered. In high school, computers are used in the classroom as teaching tools across disciplines and computer-specific courses, including coding, are taught. All high school students utilize computers at home for research, to aid in their schoolwork and for in-class or school-wide presentations.
