About Mountain Song

OUR MISSION

Mountain Song Community School, as a member of the Alliance for Public Waldorf Education, is a public charter school that utilizes developmentally appropriate holistic education to nurture the body, mind, and heart of each student.

OUR VISION

Our aim is to bring forth healthy, confident, free-thinking, self-directed children who are passionately engaged with their education and empowered to contribute positively to the world.

Mountain Song Community School is an educational community committed to the healthy growth and development of the whole child, healthy includes the physical, emotional, and social realms. Through a curriculum inspired by Waldorf-methods our teachers nurture the imagination in the early years, building a foundation for abstract thinking, gradually and appropriately challenging the intellect through out the grades. This philosophy places equal emphasis on a solid academic program, artistic expression, social development and attention to the inner life and natural rhythms of the child.

Our School is committed to creating a healthy community which reflects and supports our common values. We believe that children develop social responsibility and feel a greater sense of significance in a small, supportive environment which promotes close long-term relationships with classmates and teachers. In an atmosphere of respectful clear communication, cooperation and parent participation we believe children flourish and grow to be healthy, capable, contributing human beings.

We believe that teaching children to care for and respect the earth encourages global responsibility and promotes environmentally conscious living. The celebration of seasonal festivals is an integral part of this as children joyously experience the earth’s natural cycles. By reducing or eliminating exposure to electronic media and encouraging a cooperative rather than a competitive milieu, a child’s inherent creative and intellectual abilities will naturally unfold. At the heart of this approach is the recognition that teaching must be presented to children in a way which fills both teacher and student with wonder, reverence and enthusiasm.

Social Justice and Equity

We at Mountain Song are adding our voices to the human chorus across the country and globe calling for social justice and equity for people who have been systemically marginalized.  It is time to break the persistent cycles of oppression existing in our social structures that disadvantage, threaten, and take the lives of our brothers and sisters of color.  

The systems of social and institutional inequities woven into our society are well studied and articulated.  They have intensified even further during the COVID-19 crisis to a breaking point that people throughout the world are loudly crying out that they’ve simply had enough.  Enough.  

From its beginnings, Waldorf education has been predicated on social and cultural renewal, and this is as relevant now as it ever has been.  Waldorf education and Mountain Song Community School hold the principles of human dignity and respect for life at their core.  We believe that diversity, inclusivity, and equity are both moral and educational imperatives.

Mountain Song is committed to elevating the voices of those who are and have been marginalized, to changing the course of inequities, and to breaking down structural prejudice in all forms where it exists.  We recognize that this is an imperfect journey of growth, and that to progress, we must confront blind spots and biases in order to more fully commit ourselves to elevating one another.  We embrace this transformative work.
