Please take this opportunity to learn all you can about the school’s Waldorf-inspired curriculum by exploring the books and websites below and taking part in school events and parent education forums. 

MBCS uses a Waldorf-inspired method of instruction that does not include everything that private Waldorf schools typically provide. The study of the founder's writings about Anthroposophy are not taught or promoted. However, information about the roots of this method and its founder may be of interest when learning about why these methods are used in a public charter school.
