Our Elementary Program, Grades 1-5, offer a developmentally appropriate, experiential approach to education. We integrate academics and the arts to inspire life-long learning in each student and enable them to fully develop their unique capabilities.
We strive to develop thoughtful, fulfilled citizens who have the capacity to think imaginatively, communicate effectively, and relate compassionately. We believe in the Waldorf curriculum for educating the whole human being: head, heart and hands, which nurture well-rounded individuals who will be successful in school and beyond.
