The Mission of Pasadena Waldorf School
In our work with children, we:
educate each child to embrace the wonder and challenge of the world while achieving academic proficiency
nurture each child’s imagination while educating the intellect and encouraging the development of a healthy body and social life
teach so that each child might become a confident, capable person with integrity and a sense of social and environmental responsibility.
In our educational program, we:
recognize the spiritual nature of the human being, and therefore present a Waldorf curriculum designed to cultivate the child’s unfolding and awakening capacities, based on Rudolf Steiner’s view of child development
educate children from early childhood through eighth grade so that they arrive at concepts through imaginative, artistic, and experiential activities
embrace the opportunities afforded by our beautiful campus, the nearby San Gabriel Mountains, and Southern California’s wealth of landscapes and cultures.
In our work as a community, we:
participate in a worldwide movement of social renewal initiated by Rudolf Steiner, starting with our own campus community
strive to reflect in our student body the cultural and socioeconomic diversity of our greater community
endeavor to create an environment in which students, faculty, staff, and parents communicate openly, respectfully, and safely
commit to maintaining the quality of Waldorf Education through continuous study and evaluation.
