Mountain Laurel Waldorf School in New Paltz, NY is committed to excellence in all academic skills, supported by deep exploration of the arts, and humanities.

At Mountain Laurel, each student receives a full introduction to the classics, two foreign languages, history, geography, mathematics and science…the subjects today’s child needs to be prepared to meet the challenges of our world and the future–with clarity of thought, love of learning, a caring heart and confidence to initiate change.
