Pasadena Waldorf High School Students on a Field Trip

In an extraordinary learning environment, Waldorf students learn traditional academic subjects through distinctive and time-tested teaching methods that serve their intellectual, physical, emotional, and spiritual development.

Pasadena, CA (PRWEB) December 31, 2013

Pasadena Waldorf School announces two open house events on Saturday, January 11 for both the lower school (toddler through grade 8) and the high school. Part of a worldwide educational movement that began over 90 years ago, Pasadena Waldorf School is a leading independent school in the San Gabriel Valley. The Waldorf approach recognizes the simple insight that children learn in distinctly different ways at different stages of their development. Waldorf teachers are dedicated to teaching in ways that profoundly foster an unfolding of the student’s natural capacities.

In an extraordinary learning environment, Waldorf students learn traditional academic subjects through distinctive and time-tested teaching methods that serve their intellectual, physical, emotional, and spiritual development. Integrating the arts and academics, the academically rigorous curriculum develops imagination and independent thinking in students. The open house on January 11 will allow visitors to experience the Waldorf approach first-hand through demonstrations and presentations by the teachers of Pasadena Waldorf School.

The Open House schedule is as follows:

9:00 a.m. for the lower school (for toddler through grade 8)
209 East Mariposa
Altadena, CA 91001

1:00 p.m. for the high school (for prospective high school students and their parents)
1539 East Howard Street
Pasadena, CA 91104

No reservations are required for either location. The lower school campus will provide free childcare for children age 5 and older during the morning open house.

Pasadena Waldorf School, founded in 1979, offers an inspired education to students from Early Childhood (Parent-Child, Preschool, and Kindergarten) through Grade Eleven (and grade twelve in 2015-2016). With over ninety years of experience and over 1000 schools worldwide, Waldorf education is one of the world’s fastest growing independent school movements.
