WHAT’S NEW The Waldorf School is updating its social inclusion polices and practices as we envision a community where students are socially resilient, respectful of others, empathetic, and able to navigate interpersonal conflict in a constructive manner. Waldorf pedagogy aids in this social fluency by working implicitly through developmentally appropriate stories, movement, drama, and art. We are also strengthening our adult education program.
