“It’s a place where failing is allowed to be a path to succeeding.”

Waldorf is an education that values the inside as much as the outside. A good Waldorf education is not job training and not just a step to the next level of education. It’s the Art of teaching, guiding, allowing, unfolding and inspiring Education. It’s a place where failing is allowed to be a path to succeeding, where the good is the same as the bad is the same as the good – just like in life. A good Waldorf school is tough, rebellious, challenging and brave: it has to be these days. Look into the world and see all it has to give, all that lies beneath, all that lies above, all that lies within. It is very big and very small, just like you. A good Waldorf school carves out a little piece where that is true.
