The Waldorf School of Atlanta | Education
Welcome to The Waldorf School of Atlanta!
Experts in child development are now confirming what Rudolf Steiner, the founder of Waldorf schools, understood a hundred years ago: children learn both eagerly and naturally. Every detail of Waldorf education places the development of the individual child as the focal point. Our curriculum – rich in every branch of academics and enlivened with the arts and practical skills – honors children at each stage, nurturing their current capacities and preparing them for new learning to come. From early childhood through high school, Waldorf classes go beyond routine dispensing of academic information. They also develop the nimble, humane, and discerning minds these young people will need. Our teachers steadily build each student’s individual capacity for sensitive engagement, original thinking, clear reasoning, and the ability to translate thoughts into action.
