“Give the pupils something to do, not something to learn; and the doing is of such a nature as to demand thinking; learning naturally results.”

 

                                                 ― John Dewey

EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING

Real world relevance is woven into lessons throughout the Waldorf curriculum — whether its fourth graders learning fractions through cooking or tenth graders learning trigonometry through surveying land.  This experiential, first-hand learning is at the core of everything we do and particularly comes to life in several signature high school programs  including weeklong immersion learning trips, junior internships, senior projects and electives week. The experiential nature of our curriculum brings increased depth and practical perspective to our studies. It teaches students

“how” to think, not just “what” to think.
