Waldorf School at Moraine Farm
Making A Change To Fit Your Child
A Waldorf education can start whenever you’re ready to take the first step! We know that there are many reasons students change schools over the years, and we welcome students and families to join our community at any stage in their K – 8 experience. Understanding how a Waldorf education can be the right next step for you and your child starts here.
Transferring to Waldorf School at Moraine Farm
We welcome children into our school in Grades K – 8. Children who transfer to a Waldorf school in Grades K – 4 are often on par with their peers in reading, math and basic academic skills. Areas of foreign language, music, physical coordination skills, artistic and social development, cursive handwriting, and listening skills may require some additional attention, but it has been our experience that children progress comfortably through these transitions.
In Grades 5 – 8, a meeting with a member of our Admissions Team and one of our Middle School teachers would prove most valuable in giving you a more personal idea of what the transfer would be like for your child. These transitions are not difficult — just different. In fact, we find that many students who join in the middle school years adapt well as they transition from the larger class sizes and often less individualized teaching styles of other schools.
