HISTORY  历史

Hawthorne Valley Waldorf School began over 40 years ago on our dairy farm when a small group of pioneering Waldorf teachers moved to Harlemville from New York City. Since it was started, the school has been committed to providing a high quality education founded in Waldorf pedagogy, which seeks to educate the whole child by engaging the heart and hands in addition to the head.

历史

四十多年前,一群具有开创精神的华德福老师从纽约搬到哈伦维尔。在一家奶牛场里, 霍桑谷华德福学校成立了。建校之初,学校就致力于以华德福教学方法为基础的高品质教学,提供头心手一体的全人教育。

Since our humble beginning, we have become a widely respected and well-established educational community. There are more than 30 faculty and staff members at Hawthorne Valley serving approximately 150 families and over 255 students from kindergarten through grade twelve.

于简陋中起步,而今我们已成为一个广受尊重的完善的教育社区。霍桑谷有三十多名教师员工,服务于大约150个家庭和超过255位从幼儿园到十二年级的学生。

 

ACADEMIC PROGRAM  学术项目

At Hawthorne Valley Waldorf School, we view students as co-creators of their learning experience: classes are designed to promote active critical thinking skills as well as the mastery of specific subject material.

在霍桑谷华德福学校,我们视学生为其学习经验的共同创作者:课程的设置致力于促进积极的批判性思维能力,并精通特定学科内容。

 

We value and promote class discussions, independent projects, and question formation over rote memorization and standardized testing, an approach which has routinely led college professors to comment on how prepared Waldorf students are for deep thinking and creative problem solving.

我们重视并促进课堂讨论、独立项目和问题形成,而不是死记硬背和标准化考试。大学教授经常这样评论,华德福的学生为深入性思考和创造性解决问题做好了充足的准备。

 

Our school day begins with the Main Lesson, a one-and-a-half hour in-depth look at a specific subject.  Students rotate every 3 – 4 weeks between Main Lesson subjects, which cover topics in math, science, literature, and history. By focusing on a single subject intensively students are able to penetrate the material in a deeper way.

一天的学习从主课开始,一个半小时,深入学习特定主题。每3-4周轮换一次主课,主课的内容涵盖数学、科学、文学和历史。对单一主题专注而持续的学习,有助于学生们以更深入的方式理解它。

 

In each case, the Main Lesson uses a variety of learning methods (spoken word, art, movement, and academic instruction) to investigate the subject at hand.

主课上会使用各种学习方法(言语、艺术、运动和学术指导)来研究正在进行的主题。

 

In addition to Main Lesson subjects, students also have weekly academic skills-based classes in foreign language, math, English, and history throughout the school year. The high school program also features art, drama, music, and movement scheduled as weekly classes and/or in art blocks throughout the school year. Our athletics program offers opportunities for all students to participate in competitive sports in basketball, volleyball, soccer, and cross-country running.

在整个学年里,除主课之外,学生们还要学习每周开设的外语、数学、英语和历史等以学术技巧为基础的课程。高中课程还包括每周一次艺术、戏剧、音乐和运动,以及/或是贯穿整个学年的艺术板块。体育项目则提供篮球、排球、足球和越野跑等竞技性运动。

 

We seek to guide students on their path of self discovery, to help them become more well-balanced human beings, and to ensure that they are well-prepared for acceptance at the top colleges and universities in America.

我们致力于引导学生走上自我发现的道路,帮助他们成为更加平衡的人,确保他们为进入美国顶尖大学学习做好充分准备。
