Main Lesson is a cross-disciplinary lesson taught in a 90-120 minute class that takes place at the start of the day in blocks that last 3-4 weeks. Highly experiential, these lessons give students an opportunity to discover many ways to connect to a subject. Students create their own Main Lesson Books to document this work.
At Rudolf Steiner School, your child’s primary teacher will be the Class Teacher, a fully trained Waldorf teacher, who may accompany the class through the elementary school years. Each class is also taught by subject teachers who specialize in world language, music, movement, physical education, and the arts.
While we do not offer Advanced Placement courses or the International Baccalaureate, our elective classes offered in the 11th and 12th Grades cover material found on the AP exams. Students can work independently to prepare for these tests.
