Linden Waldorf School
Linden Waldorf School
Linden Waldorf School serves Early Childhood through 8th Grades.
We envision a thriving intergenerational and diverse community of lifelong learners dedicated to fostering the ideals of Waldorf education with the intention of cultivating the intellectual curiosity, moral consciousness, and physical well-being of our students, families, and the greater community.
Linden Waldorf School’s mission is to provide education that honors the developmental stages of childhood, cultivates a love of learning, and addresses the whole child through the head, hands, and heart.
We value Waldorf education and participating in its evolution; building on the foundation of Rudolf Steiner’s insights into child development and actively working to keep the education relevant to our time and place.
We value education that is developmentally appropriate, addresses the whole child, is academically challenging and fosters a lifelong love of learning.
We value a thriving community built on the ideals of peace, joy, cooperation, collegiality, financial responsibility, diversity, integrity and respect.
We value a deep connection with nature that nurtures wonder and reverence for the world around us. We value bio-dynamic agriculture and other forms of environmental stewardship that create a sustainable path into the future.
We value a welcoming learning environment where faculty and staff strive to bring students to an understanding and experience of the common humanity of all the world’s people – transcending stereotypes, prejudices, and divisive barriers.
