The Highland Hall School Tour offers prospective parents an opportunity to explore our 11-acre campus, featuring a state-of-the-art chemistry lab, biodynamic farm, gymnasium, sports field, and separate school areas for our Early Childhood Center, Lower School and High School, and to learn about our educational philosophy, curriculum and programs.
The Waldorf approach to education is rooted in the understanding that children learn in distinctly different ways at different stages of their development. Our teachers at Highland Hall are dedicated to teaching a curriculum that profoundly fosters the unfolding of the student’s natural capacities while encouraging the positive growth of the whole child.
Within the extraordinary learning environment at Highland Hall, our students learn traditional academic subjects through methods that serve their intellectual, physical, emotional and spiritual development. Integrating arts and academics, the academically rigorous curriculum develops imagination and independent thinking in students.
The school tour will allow visitors to experience the Waldorf approach first hand through presentations by teachers, class tours, a question and answer period with faculty and current high school students, and a performance by our Handbell Choir.
The tour begins at our main office at 9:30 am on Wednesday, May 7th, 2014. Please RSVP to: lvs(at)highlandhall(dot)org or call 818-349-1394 Ext. 211. Highland Hall Waldorf School is located at 17100 Superior St. Northridge, CA 91325. There is plenty of parking on site.
