The school caters for early childhood, primary, and high school students, and follows the Waldorf educational principles laid down by Dr Rudolf Steiner to nurture conscious, creative, independent thinkers who are prepared for life.
What sets Waldorf education apart is that its true basis lies in the importance of following the major developmental stages of the child to provide age appropriate and experiential learning. In order to raise well-rounded human-beings, the whole child – head, heart, and hands – needs to be nurtured and educated. This is why the Waldorf system strives to develop social-emotional intelligence in students, alongside academic ability. Education is a life-long journey, and so it is vital to nurture the child’s innate curiosity, creativity, values, and insatiable thirst for knowledge.
Michael Mount follows the Waldorf Curriculum up to Grade 11, and all students write the Independent Examinations Board (IEB) National Senior Certificate examinations in Matric. Michael Mount students have maintained a 100% pass rate since the inception of the Matric program in 1987.
