"Aquel que trabaja con sus manos es un obrero. El que trabaja con sus manos y su cabeza es un artesano. El que trabaja con sus manos, su cabeza y su corazón es un artista ".
Ak Lu’um Waldorf School is based on the anthroposophical teachings of humanist philosopher Rudolf Steiner. With the aim of educating free human beings we believe in supporting the child’s natural stages of development. We use the beauty and truth of the environment as a formative force in the child’s world, encouraging keen observation and reverence for life. Teachers are dedicated to kindling an inner enthusiasm for learning within each child. All subjects are presented in an imaginative and dynamic way, which removes the need for competitive testing or rewards-based motivation. The children are motivated from within (as indeed they will need to be as adults), and are able to gain the capacity for enjoyment in life-long learning.
At Ak Lu’um we believe education in the family and in school -a child’s second home- is the key to change. A fundamental change is clearly needed if we are to live in a harmonious, non-destructive manner. This is our Waldorf philosophy: A healing curriculum that is rooted in a deep understanding of the human being, strengthening the connection to the rhythms of nature and the faculties that highlight our humanity.
