Waldorf Education
Founded in Germany in the early 20th century, Waldorf Education is an independent and non-sectarian education based on the insights and teaching of the renowned scientist, educator, artist and philosopher, Dr. Rudolf Steiner (1865-1925). His worldview, which finds practical application in Waldorf education, not only fosters inner development and individual freedom, but also stresses social responsibility and respect for others.
“Days that they’re sick they say, ‘I think I can make it, I’m going to go.  And if I don’t feel well, can you pick me up?’   They just love to come to school.”  -- AWS Parent
