We’ve seen the proof that BWS prepares children for whatever life presents. Students at the Brooklyn Waldorf School explore the terrain of the given world through active, inquiry-based thinking.

Lower SchoolGrades 1 through 5 weave together arts, academics, movement, and social-emotional learning to provide a holistic and developmentally appropriate education.

“The claim for interdisciplinary learning is that parallel learning gives you advantages that series learning lacks. Those advantages may be: learning depth by fostering analogies; learning applicability by understanding context; learning flexibility by being aware of different modes of thought and ways of working; encouraging creative breakthroughs by using examples and models from different fields, etc.”
