Waldorf education strives to educate the whole child in full and balanced manner.
As my children transitioned from elementary to high school, I found myself unwilling to give up on the education of the ‘heart’ and ‘hand’ in favour of the ‘head’. Waldorf high school continues to work at all three, even if there is a natural emphasis on the cognitive realms that begins to emerge in adolescence.
The developmental insights of Rudolf Steiner and the unwavering commitment to social health that is a part of Waldorf Pedagogy are aspects of the students’ school life that distinguish Waldorf Schools from other progressive approaches. I am grateful that my teens will continue to benefit in their Waldorf High School from the loving attention of a small community of adults committed to shaping creative and confident young citizens.
