Richmond Waldorf School
Richmond Waldorf School Photo - In Waldorf schools, each student individually creates drawings, summaries, and original compositions about the subject being studied.

Waldorf students engage in academic subjects through a variety of artistic work because the arts engage the students more deeply and allow them to express themselves more fully.
