Middle School

What makes the Waldorf School so remarkable? We’re intentionally small, so all students get the attention they deserve. Many core academics are taught in intensive blocks, providing learning that is deep and thorough. Woodworking and class plays are as much a part of the curriculum as math and science. In seventh and eighth grades, students go (twice!) a year to our to campus in New Hampshire for a week of bonding together in the great outdoors, sail the ocean on a seaworthy nineteenth century schooner for their eighth grade trip (location varies from year to year), and travel into New York City’s many cultural hotspots to experience firsthand the history, art, music and architecture they’ve studied.  

From teaching felting to how to propel a rocket launcher, our creative and dedicated teachers serve as guides, inspirers, and points of first contact with the wider world of ideas for our students.


We want students to meet exciting people, try something different, discover something about themselves, and see the world from a new perspective; put simply we want students to learn.


There is an inviting atmosphere throughout our school created by happy children, engaged families, and dedicated teachers. As a parent—the opportunity to self-select your child’s peer group, one which is aligned with your family’s values and outlook on the world, is amongst the most important educational decisions you can make.


We provide unparalleled opportunities for children, by immersing them in our working farm, outdoor adventures and a community of adults who respect the natural world.


We take the best of classical education and make it relevant by intertwining the arts with academics, resulting in a synergistic experience that creates deeper meaning. No other form of education provides for an academic experience this enriching, authentic and joyful.


We provide opportunities for children to be challenged while creating an environment that allows them to be healthy, satisfied, and productive community members.


Our school includes a 200-acre farm campus, organic gardens, and a community that values well-balanced children.
