The Housatonic Valley Waldorf School is based on the ideas of educator, artist and philosopher, Dr. Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925) who founded the first Waldorf School. Today, there are over 800 Waldorf schools and 600 early childhood programs in 35 countries around the world. These schools share a philosophy, methodology, and basic curriculum. Waldorf schools are dedicated to academic excellence and offer a challenging classical education that prepares students for the most demanding high schools and colleges. At the core of the Waldorf philosophy is the belief that knowledge is best learned experientially as well as academically. Education is an artistic process.
