Minnesota Waldorf School Statement of Philosophy, Mission and Vision

Mission

The Minnesota Waldorf School nurtures children’s highest capacities of thinking, feeling and willing by cultivating a sense of truth, the power of imagination, and a feeling of responsibility for themselves and the world around them.

Vision

Forward the life of the school such that it can be widely shared with others in our surrounding community.

Forward the possibility of transforming the existing culture, such that the one Steiner spoke of might be realized.

This philosophy, mission and vision are realized through the daily activities and interactions of all the members of the community. In addition to their respective functions, Board meetings, Parent Council gatherings, annual meetings, Class meetings, discussion circles, and other informal gatherings also integrate study and personal reflection into their work. Hence, communication of the school’s ideals is a daily experience and one that nourishes those who choose to participate.
