What makes our High School Unique?
- INTENTIONAL EDUCATIONAL ENVIRONMENT: A physically small school means that our students will relate to their education in a deeply personal and engaging way. Close connections, with students across the grades and with their teachers, will support and deepen their learning. Small means having the opportunity to get out of the classroom for hands-on EXPERIENTIAL encounters linked to the curriculum locally, nationally and internationally.
- PROGRESSIVE EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY: The founder of Waldorf Education, Rudolf Steiner, understood the needs of the developing adolescent and created a high school curriculum that is both meaningful and challenging. Our students will appreciate the BALANCE of the rigorous academic work that exceeds provincial standards, with musical, practical and fine arts and outdoor pursuits. Experiential learning will enliven a curriculum that values character education and the ideals found in the developing teenager.
- EXCEPTIONAL FACULTY: The specialists teaching at the high school will be highly MOTIVATED members of the learning community and come from all walks of life, where they are experts in their fields. Delivering both seminar style morning lessons and run-through classes, these teachers will act as mentors and role models to their students, creating life long bonds.
THE HALTON WALDORF HIGH SCHOOL WILL BE A SCHOOL WHICH INSPIRES ADOLESCENTS TO BE CONFIDENT, CAPABLE AND COMPASSIONATE AND EQUIPS THEM TO BE SUCCESSFUL IN AN EVER-CHANGING WORLD.
