An education inspired by the 7 core principles of Public Waldorf.

"A bird does not sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song."

"Our task is to find teaching methods that continually engage the whole human being. We would not succeed in this endeavor if we failed to concentrate on developing the human sense of art."

- Rudolf Steiner, founder of Waldorf Education
