SunRidge School Mission Statement
SunRidge Charter School is a public Waldorf methods school where parents, teachers, staff, children, and the land we share come together in a safe and caring educational community to nurture each student’s intellectual, artistic, emotional, social, and physical development. We govern our school based on the principles of participation. Using Waldorf methods throughout our curriculum, we strive to meet the educational needs of each child at every stage of his or her growth. We support our students in developing the capacities for independent and creative thinking, self-confidence, self-directed learning, social and environmental responsibility, and affirmation of individual and cultural diversity. Our vision is that the students of SunRidge Charter School will graduate with a love of learning, proficient in all core subjects, well-prepared to pursue further academic and personal goals, and motivated to make positive contributions to their world.
A Typical Day at SunRidge
Every day at SunRidge begins with the ringing of the old-fashioned school bell.  Students are welcomed individually into the classroom by a handshake and a personal welcome by their teacher. This is followed by a verse recited by the whole class to help the group become present with each other and to calm their minds for learning. Classrooms are decorated with beauty in mind and chalkboards are trimmed with artfully carved wood. Only natural materials are used in the classrooms and all families are asked to limit their child’s exposure to mass media. Children are guided to learn by honoring their innate love of learning and by deepening the curriculum into a whole-body experience. This makes learning at SunRidge fun as well as academically rich. For example, children are taught lessons through singing; practice their multiplication tables by bouncing balls; participate in hands-on science experiments; and are encouraged to get enough sleep to not only rest the body, but to foster dream time which assists in more deeply understanding the day’s learnings.  These methods bring the lessons into the child’s whole being for true learning and life-long retention. There is magic at SunRidge School. It is the magic of a new generation being given the gift of an education that inspires them to soar into the world on thewings of a formative education, self-awareness and respect for others in the circle of life.  It is our gift to humanity to nurture the imaginations of these children to bring forth newer and better versions of what we can become as human beings.
