A key feature of Waldorf Education is bringing specific topics at appropriate developmental times. As we prepare our oldest students to step into the next phase of their lives, we explore with them, from varied vantage points, what it means to be human, and what our place is in the world. Prominent among the blocks offered in 12th grade is Zoology, the study of animal form and evolution.
Our senior class gathers with other Waldorf schools in a week-long course on invertebrate zoology. Held on a private campground on Hermit Island, a few miles south of Bath, this course has been taking place for over 20 years. The unique setting coupled with the chance to meet, study with, and play with students from other schools results in a week rich in learning of many kinds.
