Why Waldorf?

At Prairie Hill the child is given time to be a child – to discover the world slowly, gaining meanings and values as the learning process unfolds. As Prairie Hill students grow toward adulthood, they discover a true sense of self, bringing to their communities initiative, adaptability and moral courage.

The Waldorf method of education draws out the child’s inherent curiosity and love of learning through teachers who have a profound reverence for the child as a unique human being, our aim is to graduate students who are capable of independent critical thinking.

Waldorf education provides a rich academic curriculum including science, math, language arts, literature, history, geography, and a foreign language. Waldorf education builds capacity for critical, creative, and flexible thinking skills by integrating arts and sciences. Voice and wooden flute music are a part of the curriculum from Grade 1, with strings beginning at grade 4.
