Peace Valley Charter School recognizes each child’s unique potential and provides children an education that gives them the tools and skills to flexibly meet every challenge the future brings.
Peace Valley’s educational philosophy has its roots in an independent educational movement of more than 1,800 Waldorf schools worldwide. While many Waldorf schools are private, The George Lucas Educational Foundation reported in 2009 that the number of public schools inspired by Waldorf educational methods is growing fast. For almost a hundred years, using the mediums of art and nature as their point of departure, Waldorf schools have provided a rigorous academic education, recognized for its students’ flexibility of thought, ingenuity, and practical ability, and their devotion to community service.
“ The need for imagination, a sense of truth, and a feeling of responsibility — these three forces are the very nerve of education.”
