Mission Statement

The mission of Golden Hill Steiner School in Denmark is to help students discover and develop their individual capacities so that they can fully engage in the world and contribute meaningfully to society. We aim to cultivate clarity of thinking, compassion and moral strength, and purposeful action in our students.

Our educational approach is founded on the time-tested insights into human development applied by Steiner/Waldorf schools throughout the world. We integrate a rich, age-appropriate curriculum in the humanities, math and science, with music, visual and practical arts and movement. We work to make lessons active, filled with imagination and connected with practical life. We recognise that the heart of education is the relationship between teacher and students, which grows and changes to meet the distinct developmental stages of the child.

Building community is also vital to our mission. Faculty, parents, alumni, and friends collaborate to tend and grow the school, modeling the lifelong learning, fruitful cooperation and purposeful work we aim to develop in our students.

Anti-Bullying Statement

GHSS does not condone bullying and harassment in any form (physical, verbal, and/or cyber) at our school. Bullying and harassment cause pain and stress to students and are never justified or excusable as “just teasing” or “just playing.” Bullying occurs when a person, or group of people, repeatedly tries to hurt, humiliate or get power over another less powerful person. We do our best to prevent bullying as well as to act swiftly if we encounter a bully situation. This applies to all activities at school, after-school programs, school field trips, and school-sponsored events. This school-wide system applies to all students, teachers, staff, specialists, and anyone who works on our grounds, whether employed by the school, working as contractors, or volunteers.
