Curriculum Overview for the Seventh and Eight Grades

“When children relate what they learn to their experience, they are interested and alive, and what they learn becomes their own. Waldorf Schools are designed to foster this kind of
learning.”
-Henery Barnes, longtime Waldorf teacher and former AWSNA Board chair
