Rethinking thinking: Today's society places a strong emphasis on creating a testing culture. At The Waldorf School of Garden City we believe it is time to rethink thinking. Creativity is the new smart. Conceptual thinking is the new smart. The ability to synthesize disparate ideas is the new smart. Rote memorization won't get you there. But inspiration will.
Choosing a school is one of the biggest decisions you will make for your child and your family. Parents choose The Waldorf School of Garden City because of:
rigorous academics enlivened by fine and practical arts, languages, music & drama
excellent teacher-student and teacher-parent relations
emphasis on family and community values
a strong reputation for environmentalism
expertise in child development
The Waldorf School of Garden City knows that the key to nurturing the capacities of the developing mind is inspiration. Inspired children are engaged learners. When students graduate from the Waldorf School of Garden City, they do so as creative thinkers whose capacities for both analysis and imagination are not only treasured, but sought.
