Journey School, the first public charter school in the Capistrano Unified School District, opened its doors on February 14, 2000. The school was started by a group of committed parents and teachers who believed they could offer a distinct educational alternative by forming a school guided by the Core Principles of Public Waldorf education.
Waldorf, the fastest growing independent school movement in the world, which is also emerging in public schools across the U.S., operates under the philosophy that in order to develop critical thinking, a child needs an active and creative imagination. Within the Journey School classroom, teachers masterfully blend academic and artistic disciplines so that the whole child is involved in every aspect of learning. This integration of mind, body and heart allows each child’s intellect to unfold at its own pace and to reach its full potential.
