Arts and Nature Based Education

Member of the Alliance for Public Waldorf Education

Peace Valley Charter School has answered the call from families across the Treasure Valley for a free public school guided by the Core Principles of the Alliance for Public Waldorf Education.

Whole Child Education

Each child is seen as an individual, and educated in rhythm with their own unique physical, mental and emotional development. Our curriculum is designed to develop your child’s capacities for physical well-being, social depth and creative free thinking.

 

Arts-Based Learning

Movement and expression fill our school. Teachers infuse academics with singing, painting, handwork, movement, drawing, musical instruments, storytelling, drama and dance. The arts are not a separate activity, but interwoven with instruction.

 

Connection to Nature

We incorporate sustainable living practices, environmental stewardship, and experiential learning through outdoor experiences, animal husbandry, and gardening skills.

 

Building Global Citizens

Learning a foreign language is not just an academic exercise but a gateway to understanding human beings who are different from us, with their own individuality and experiences of daily life.


The Trail Ahead


Peace Valley Charter School will open as a free public school in the autumn of 2018. We have been approved to initially offer enrollment in grades K-6. Middle school grades will be added each year until we offer full K-8 education.
