In a Waldorf School, discipline is neither rigid in the traditional sense nor free in a permissive way. The objective of discipline is an easy, peaceful atmosphere in which all can breathe freely. This arises quite naturally when there is the right human understanding amongst pupils and between teacher and pupil: a mutual caring concern and regard. Correction, if required, is carefully considered regarding the nature of the behavior and the dignity both of the individual concerned and the fellow students in the class.
“My meeting with Rudolf Steiner led me to occupy myself with him from that time forth and to remain always aware of his significance. We both felt the same obligation to lead man once again to true inner culture. I have rejoiced at the achievements his great personality and his profound humanity have brought about in the world.”— Albert Schweitzer, 1952 Nobel Peace Laureate
Waldorf graduates think for themselves and value the opportunity to translate their new ideas into practice. They both value and practice life-long learning and have a highly developed sense for aesthetics.
