Berkeley Rose offers to its children a complete (“head, heart, and hands”) and loving approach to education; an education that honors the individual as much as it teaches the importance of community.
In all of its actions in the classroom, Berkeley Rose strives to:
- Respect and protect childhood.
- Support and help develop all aspects of each child through academics,
- Social/emotional health, and motor skills at the appropriate developmental time.
- Put forth individuals who are citizens of the world, dedicated to understanding and contributing to the health and balance of human kind.
- Follow the Waldorf educational model (the school is a Member of WECAN and is applying for developing membership of AWSNA).
As a community, Berkeley Rose offers an environment in which communication is transparent, compassionate, and open, and where diversity of all kinds is supported, celebrated, and woven into the curriculum. It is a school that is accessible and judgment-free, and works with families in exploring and discovering the best choices for their children in a culture brimming with options.
Berkeley Rose seeks a representative community of diversity, welcoming students of any race, religion, ethnic, and financial background. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national, or ethnic origin in the administration of its educational or admissions programs and policies. The school is a nonprofit 501(c)(3).
