|Description|| Waldorf schools offer a developmentally appropriate, experiential approach to education. They integrate the arts and academics for children from preschool through 12th Grade. The aim of the education is to inspire life-long learning in each student and enable them to fully develop their unique capacities.
Founded in Germany in the early 20th century, Waldorf education is an independent
and inclusive form of education based on the insights and teaching of the renowned
anthroposophist, artist, and scientist, Rudolf Steiner. Evolving from a profound understanding of the human spirit and human development, Waldorf education is regionally adaptive and has grown to include hundreds of schools worldwide.
