"Balance is a key word in our education. A child is not some cerebral machine stuck behind a desk
to be stuffed with facts and information. A child is an awakening intellect, a burgeoning emotive being,
and a being of the will--the will to live, discover
and grow. Any education worthy of the name
must address itself to all three of these faculties
in the name of wholeness and health."
~Bill Bryant, from "Waldorf Education: The Art of Awakening the Child"

"I rejoice that my children are met each day by our outstanding and dedicated faculty, by the juicy
curriculum, and by the spirit of this education which,
at its heart, has true respect for the soul of the child
I am so grateful to have found
this fertile soil for their eager, budding selves."
~Sarah Walston, WIWS parent

"It is aliveness that must be the guiding principle.
Joy and happiness in living, a love of all existence,
a power and energy for work, and imagination,
a sense of truth and a feeling of responsibility...
These are the forces which are the very nerve of education."
~ Rudolf Steiner
