At the Cincinnati Waldorf School, we are committed to preparing our students for life. In addition to an engaging and rigorous academic program, our students learn compassion, initiative, resilience, creativity, balance, problem-solving, and independent thinking—exactly what our world needs most now.
The traditional education system in the U.S. has become more and more test-oriented. Students are asked to memorize information, regurgitate it for a test, and move on to the next thing. Waldorf Education (one of the fastest-growing educational movements in the world) offers an experiential, arts-integrated, and developmentally appropriate approach to education.
Experiential education allows students the opportunity to learn by doing and experiencing, thus allowing for a deeper understanding of concepts. At CWS, students learn through traditional methods as well as through music, movement, drama, painting, sculpting, woodworking, world language, gardening, knitting, etc.
Through hands-on experiences, community building, and problem-solving, CWS students cultivate their intellectual, social-emotional, and physical abilities to become inspired, well-rounded, and passionate young adults who are of service to the world.
