The goal of a Waldorf high-school education is to stengthen your ability to think creatively and independently. The focus is on a balanced education rather than a curriculum geared toward standardized and formulaic test-taking. Class discussions are lively and frequent, leading you and your peers to mature and respectful discourse.
Opportunities abound for multi-layered exploration of subject matter, and you will benefit from an education in which subjects and experiences are interconnected. Your math skills will be supported by your musical education, and will support your creation of a book in Applied Arts class. Your art training will infuse your academic main-lesson books. Your analysis of literature will strengthen your own writing of short stories and poems. You will take part in chorus, orchestra, and band, as well as attend Fine Arts and Applied Arts classes.
Our aim is to sharpen your understanding of our vast and complex world, broaden your capacity for empathy and cooperation with other human beings, and strengthen your ability to translate thoughts and plans into deeds. You will step out of Green Meadow with focus, balance, self-discipline, and self-confidence, and you will be ready to take on the challenges that come your way.
