A distinctive and powerful education
The Waldorf School of Garden City teaches not what to think, but how to think. In an atmosphere of free and open inquiry, students and teachers debate, collaborate, and investigate, challenging assumptions—and one another—with insights backed by rigorous study. This unique education transforms individuals, preparing and empowering them to make a positive impact on the world.
Our core classes are presented in blocks, called main lessons, which are innovative one-and-a-half hour seminars that allow teachers and students alike to fully explore a topic, both academically and practically. Our curriculum also incorporates lessons in woodworking, fiber arts, gardening, and movement, all of which are invaluable to the growth and development of children's dexterity, coordination, and personal philosophies as they blossom into our next generation's creators and innovators.
