Inspired Learning For Life
Northridge, California (PRWEB) October 23, 2014
The Highland Hall School Tour offers prospective parents an opportunity to explore the 11-acre campus, featuring a state-of-the-art chemistry lab, biodynamic farm, gymnasium, sports field, and separate school areas for Early Childhood Center, Lower School and High School, and to learn about the 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. The 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, the 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 the school's Handbell Choir.
The tour is on Wednesday, November 5th. An informal meet and greet in front of the main office begins at 8:30 am. The tour begins at 9:00 am.
