Education For ALL Students

Our Mission:

Focus on learning rather than teaching in order to reach understanding.
                                                           - Dr. William Glasser's Choice Theory

Our Beliefs:

  • 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.
  - The goal of Waldorf\Rudolf Steiner Education   
  • It's not how smart you are, it's how you're smart!                                                                                                                                        - Dr. Howard Gardner
