In a truly balanced educational program, each student will find many ways for his or her gifts and talents to shine. And even a very bright child who can zoom through "reading, writing and arithmetic" needs a school that provides real challenges for growth in other dimensions. At AWS, students can do their best in the academic core and find their balance in a rich program of gymnastics, sports, drama, speech, German, painting, clay modeling, instrumental music, singing, creative writing, knitting, crocheting, woodworking and so much more.
The harmonious development of our students depends on the integration of the arts into every aspect of the curriculum. With their class teachers and with specialists, all students learn to paint, draw and sculpt. They also all sing, play musical instruments, learn eurythmy (an art of movement to music and the spoken word), and perform in their class plays.
