Parent Meeting: Help Our Garden Grow!

We will be discussing the school garden master plan, integration of the garden into the curriculum, and volunteer opportunities within this project. Additionally, we will also be kicking off a HUGE new fundraiser for our school that requires very little student involvement and could potentially raise a large sum of money for us!

What is the experience of going to a Waldorf school?

Jeff Dickenson (our architect) and Lazure artist Charles Andrade (who painted our mural and taught lazure to our families) are both founders of the Waldorf School on the Roaring Fork. Be inspired by their story!

Childhood is not a dress rehearsal for adulthood, nor is it a race. It is a separate, unique, and very special phase of life. And I’m afraid that we’re essentia...lly wiping it out of existence due to a misguided belief that earlier is better. http://www.parenttoolkit.com/…/debunking-the-belief-that-ea… See More

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.

Member 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.
