Mission Statement

Tucson Waldorf School is a community dedicated to joy in learning. We believe in engaging each child through meaningful experiences, attuned to the unique stages of childhood.

Description

Waldorf education is a developmentally attuned and experiential approach to education. Founded in the early 20th century, Waldorf education is based on the insights and principles of education outlined by the world-renowned scientist, anthroposophist and artist Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925). Waldorf education evolved from Steiner’s profound understanding of human development to address the needs of the growing child.

Teachers in Waldorf schools are dedicated to generating an inner enthusiasm for learning within every child. This eliminates the need for constant competitive testing, academic placement, and behavioral rewards to motivate learning and allows motivation to arise from within. The internal motivation that is generated in Waldorf education helps to engender the capacity for joyful life-long learning.These principles inspire and guide teachers, administrators, trustees, and parents today.

Waldorf education is independent and inclusive. It upholds the principles of freedom in education and engages independent administration locally, continentally and internationally. It is regionally appropriate education with hundreds of schools worldwide today.

Tucson Waldorf School graduates approach life with purpose, intention, and commitment to social responsibility, confident of their place in the world.
