Waldorf School Orange County

“Our highest endeavor must be to develop free human beings who are able of themselves to impart purpose and direction to their lives. The need for imagination, a sense of truth, and a feeling of responsibility – these three forces are the very nerve of education.”

—Rudolf Steiner, Founder, Waldorf Education

Have you experienced the joy of Eurythmy? Here at WSOC, our students are blessed with biweekly lessons led by our two dedicated Eurythmy teachers.

What is Eurythmy, you ask? Allow our students to explain! #eurythmy #waldorfeducation

All of our students from Grades 4 through 8 practice an instrument for the orchestra or the band. They learn to site read and play in an ensemble. Months of study, effort and energy result in the annual Spring Concert. Grades 4-8 student musicians delighted their audience with heartfelt performances of pieces by Beethoven, Wolfhart, Dvorak, J. Williams & Handel (to name a few).
What a wonderful evening!

8th Grade Projects are a rite of passage at the Waldorf School Orange County, providing an opportunity for students to experience the accomplishment of completing a long-term commitment to one topic of research and study. Working with mentors and experts in their areas of interest, the projects foster relationships, develop fortitude and highlight the courage it takes to speak and engage an audience.
