WALDORF IS DIFFERENT

in all the right ways

 

We balance core academics with the arts, movement, and time outdoors

      We know that challenging academics—plus the arts, music, recess, and athletics—mean more engagement and less stress. Learn more about our elementary and middle school curricula.

    Our classrooms are screen-free, and media use at home is strongly discouraged.

       Waldorf students develop the skills that experts say are most essential for 21 st  century careers—without the excessive social media use and reliance on technology that has both parents and psychologists worried. Learn more about our forward-thinking media philosophy.

      Our nursery and kindergarten classes are play-based.

         We know that self-directed free play, outdoor exploration, and caring relationships with experienced teachers translate into healthy cognitive development and confidence in grades 1–8. Waldorf leads the way in providing a healthy foundation for future learning.

        Academic instruction begins gently in 1st grade, with homework starting in 2nd or 3rd.

            The Waldorf curriculum is carefully mapped to children’s physical and cognitive development. We teach them what they are ready for, when they are ready for it. Our students go on to the area's many fine public and private high schools and a diverse array of colleges and universities.

          Waldorf is not the same as Montessori.

              In fact, the two pedagogies are very different, especially in the early years. See a comparison of the two approaches.

            We celebrate the world’s major spiritual traditions without being a religious school.

                Waldorf education views the child as a spiritual being, to be educated in mind, body, and soul. WSL’s non-sectarian curriculum respects diversity and teaches students about the world’s great cultural traditions. We weave the values of civility and kindness into our daily work in the hopes of building a more tolerant, open minded world.
