Our Mission:

Focus on


learning


rather than


teaching 

in order to reach


understanding.
                                                                                
- Dr. William Glasser's Choice Theory


Our Beliefs:


      "forget what you know...
  ...move from Learning to Thinking to Creating."
​                                                                - Jacob Barnett








Students should be judged not by what they cannot  
                                      do, but what they CAN do.                                                                           ​                                                                  - Author Unknown        
         
To enable students as fully as possible to choose
           and, in freedom, to realize their individual path
                                      through life as adults. 

                                                               - Waldorf\Rudolf Steiner Education    


   It's not how smart you are, it's how you're smart! 
​                                                              - Dr. Howard Gardner
