A child’s years from first grade through eighth grade are a time of dramatic physical, emotional, and intellectual development. Monadnock Waldorf School creates an encouraging, challenging, and collaborative learning environment that respects and nurtures your child’s growth.
Students learn through the guidance of a Class Teacher, who shapes the student experience by staying with the same class for eight years. The Class Teacher guides the class through a rigorous, rich curriculum of developmentally appropriate studies and activities, from the number songs and letter stories of first grade through the chemistry experiments and Shakespeare productions of eighth grade.
You won’t find standardized textbooks here. Monadnock Waldorf students fully explore each subject with facts, reasoning, art, observation, music and physical activity. In the process, they create their own textbooks, as lasting, creative records of their achievement.
