“The Waldorf way of exploring concepts rather than simply memorizing facts and formulas provides an excellent foundation for life-long learning. Understanding concepts has helped our son know how to think, not what to think. The learning modules integrated history with geography, with science, with mathematics, with music, and art – each reinforcing the lessons. The age-appropriate approach to education at the South Shore Waldorf School, coupled with the community of friends that support it, has made our association with the school a wonderful experience.”

Dana Phillip Doiron, Son attended grades 2 – 6
