Waldorf schools offer a developmentally appropriate, balanced approach to education that integrates the arts and academics for children from preschool through twelfth grade. It encourages the development of each child’s sense of truth, beauty, and goodness, and provides an antidote to violence, alienation, and cynicism. The aim of the education is to inspire in each student a lifelong love of learning, and to enable them to fully develop their unique capacities.
All our four children either attend or have attended Waldorf schools. Tessa is currently in 5th grade and Naomi in 7th grade at the Great Barrington Rudolf Steiner School. Alexander is in ninth grade at the Great Barrington Waldorf High School. After two years at the Hawthorne Valley School, Leah transferred to Simon’s Rock College of Bard where she is getting her Associates and Bachelor of Arts degrees.
