Curriculum

Micha-el School offers a program inspired by Waldorf education.  With a heavy focus on the importance of hands-on experiential learning for their students, rather than standardized testing, Waldorf teachers help their students to explore curricula through diverse activities, with plenty of room to customize lesson plans.  We encourage you to start here to explore the unique and lasting benefits of Waldorf education.

Waldorf schools offer a developmentally appropriate, experiential, and academically rigorous approach to education.  Each day starts with a two-hour main lesson block.  Main lesson subjects – math, language arts, history, geography – are taught in blocks of three to four weeks enabling students to focus on one subject at a time.  Arts are integrated in all academic disciplines for children in all grades. Other specialty subjects, such as movement, foreign languages, gardening, music and physical education are taught year-round. Waldorf Education aims to inspire life-long learning in all students and to enable them to fully develop their unique capacities.
