“My parents were looking for a school that would nurture the whole person… that was focused on educating students with values, as well as the academic tools necessary to be constructive and contributing human beings. (Steiner Education) taught me how to think for myself, to be responsible for my decisions. Second, it made me a good listener, sensitive to the needs of others. And third, it helped establish meaningful beliefs.
In all the Main Block lessons – in history, science, philosophy – we really probed the importance of values and beliefs. In dealing with a lot of complex issues and a lot of stress, if that isn’t balanced by a core of meaningful beliefs, you really will just be consumed and fail.”– Kenneth Chenault American Express CEO
