By the end of Primary school, students are experiencing Piaget’s concrete operational cognition and are ready to learn, to ask tough questions and to make connections between themselves and the world around them.
Studies show that people learn best when engaged, so we keep our Elementary School children moving as they learn – ensuring that students don’t just memorize, but truly comprehend and process, what they learn during these formative educational years.
For example, at Spring Garden, science comes alive outdoors in gardening class. Ancient Greek history and language art lessons live on in Olympiad event training in gym class.
Students also stay engaged by interweaving arts into every main lesson subject. Waldorf Elementary School children take pride in creating their own textbooks for math, science, language and history lessons. Literature and history about the Old Testament, Norse mythology, and Greek culture comes to life through recitation, folk dance and plays performed during assembly and after school.
