- Be Yourself
At Waldorf schools around the world in every culture, we believe each life should be unique: Discover what you will do in this life and start doing it now, with friends and mentors who all know, respect, and value each other -- as we are, and as we change.
- Create Together
Spend every morning collaborating with a close-knit class of 12-15 to understand the larger story our lives are part of. Each month, you`ll focus on a specific aspect of literature, science, and/or technology and dive deep, experiencing it through dynamic discussion, research, hands-on exploration, and artistic creativity. Spend every afternoon doing real, creative work in studios and exploration workshops you choose. Pursue three work areas each trimester, which can include studios in fine arts, design, handwork, and theater, exploration workshops going out to study and act on issues that matter to you, science project labs, outdoor fitness and wilderness workshops.
- Learn Deeply
Learning means more than memorizing what you might need someday. It means learning something real today and figuring out how you`ll do it better the next time. It means having time to breathe, time to build trusting relationships, time to think deeply with a vibrant sense of wonder and curiosity. It means finding out how much impact you can have, and being fully engaged intellectually, emotionally, and physically.
- The best preparation for a great life is to practice living a great life now.

I have two children who had not attended Waldorf schools previously and who are attending this high school. They are both thrilled with it. The school has created a very warm community environment, and overall the other students are really nice. The teachers are excellent, and my teens find the curriculum interesting and sufficiently challenging. I feel really lucky that we found a high school that emphasizes good values (meaningful community service every year, no bullying, etc.) and where both of my children could flourish. I can't say enough good things about this school!
