“The healthy social life is found when, in the mirror of each human soul, the whole community finds its reflection, and when, in the community, the virtue of each one is living.”
Rudolf Steiner, founder of Waldorf education
Diversity in Education
Waldorf education is founded in a worldview that acknowledges the spiritual nature of all human beings. City of Lakes Waldorf School strives to create and nurture diversity in education through a diverse learning community of children, teachers, families and staff; recognizing and valuing individual differences while promoting and celebrating the richness in our local and global communities.
- We honor the freedom, equality, individuality and unique capacities of each child, and categorically reject racism and discrimination in all its forms.
- We are dedicated to creating an inclusive community that respects and affirms each of its members, honoring their diversity of culture, ethnicity, race, religion, family structure, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, gender identity, physical abilities, and unique learning styles.
- We are committed to diversity in education that transcends stereotypes and prejudices and fundamentally recognizes and values the many peoples and perspectives of our community and the world.
- We believe that a diverse community and the practice of inclusiveness strengthen the educational experience and foster the essential element of respect that prepares students to live and work in a global environment, and contribute to the well-being of all humanity.
