A Waldorf-Inspired Curriculum 

Kindergarten to 8th Grade


Monterey Bay Charter School uses an educational method that nurtures and inspires creativity, critical thinking, and motivated learning. Committed to educating the whole  child, the school endeavors to foster the unfolding of each child’s full potential.

Using Waldorf-inspired methods integrated with State standards, with emphasis on a solid academic foundation, artistic expression, and social/emotional development.

A holistic, arts-integrated approach to learning emphasizes the child’s relationship to the natural world thereby promoting respect for the environment and humankind. The goal is to nurture the whole child with the objective of enabling students to become self-motivated, competent life-long learners.
