In celebration of 100 years of Waldorf education and our nearly 10 years as a school, Bayou Village School is delighted to announce our rebranding! As we enter the second decade of establishing a Waldorf school in central Houston, we look back at how far we've come with pride. What was once a school nestled in a little house in the Heights has become a thriving community of families, educators, and board members – each doing their part in moving our mission forward.
THE THREE RINGS. Our three rings, illustrated in the rich warm tones that adorn many of our classrooms and represents the same warmth our children are comforted by each morning. The organic overlapping rings represent the three-fold system of Administration, Faculty & Board from which Waldorf schools operate. We also know Bayou Village School couldn't be what it is today without our families. Always there to support, volunteer, and persevere with endless patience through our school’s growing pains, our families' belief in what Bayou Village School offers Houston is invaluable and imperative to our success and development.
HEAD. HEART. HANDS. Many seek out Waldorf education in a desperate attempt to find a pedagogy that aims to educate the whole child as a whole being. Outside of an academia that focuses on benchmarks and test scores, we aim to meet children where they are, not where the world says they should be. Time and space provide our children the opportunity to connect to the world around them as their authentic-self, and our focus is always to patiently consider every aspect of who they are and what they need, while giving them rich opportunities to become the very best version of themselves.
We invite you to join us in this new chapter of Bayou Village School, as we reinvent how we represent ourselves to the world. Warmer, richer tones. An illustration of our community and a message that speaks to each of us looking for more for their child. Head. Heart. Hands.
