We all vividly remember our high school years. During this span of time our self-awareness and self questions were at a pinnacle. Out memories range from despair to elation as we review those exciting but turbulent years. There is no pathway around this stage of life we must just bear them and proceed straight ahead.

In a Waldorf high school each student is seen as an individual with unique talents needing to be honed and academic skills needing to be rigorously exercised. At the same time the students seek truth in all they encounter, be it the course work or adult interaction.
