Our Take: Toronto Waldorf School
Not all Waldorf programs are created the same, and the Toronto Waldorf School is a great example of that. The program extends through grade 12 which, for some, may be surprising given that the method is so firmly associated with the ECE years. As such, it calls into question what Waldorf is, and what it can mean in the life of a child. For TWS, it means a commitment to active learning, process over product, and cross-curricular, collaborative learning. Families that enroll typically are also attracted by an overt attention to ethics, environmental stewardship, interpersonal values, and the encouragement of individual expression. While the curriculum is strong, it’s often that values peice that tips the balance. The ideal student is one who will thrive in an interactive learning environment that builds from the students shared curiosity.
