Mission and principles


The Waldorf International School Madreselva’s mission is to promote the healthy and integral development of each child. We aim to empower our students to reach their full potential and encourage the development of skills needed to contribute to society ethically and environmentally responsibly. We are a strong educational institution that approaches a true understanding of human nature to shape individuals who are free and responsible for themselves, capable of building a better and just world while respecting their individuality and becoming a worthy example for younger generations. Our motto is “Education for Life.”

We will achieve these goals through a holistic education, cultivating science, art, moral and spiritual values with equal intensity, allowing the entire educational process to strengthen the will of the children, appropriately cultivate their feelings, and form their intellect. To do this, our curriculum aims to align with key stages of childhood development and stimulate significant developmental experiences at each moment.


      • In our school, we will create a family-like environment, a second home where students find the tranquility they need to develop their curiosity and grow as individuals.
      • We will work in a community, faculty, families, and students to achieve free individuals who can develop all their intellectual, emotional, and moral strengths.
      • We will create a healthy, responsible, professional, and welcoming school community.
      • We will live the entire educational process in a way that tends towards the formation of intellect, the cultivation of feelings, and the strengthening of the will.


      • Students as our Pillar: They are the heart of our social system. Supporting their integral and harmonious development drives the creation of our educational community.
      • Waldorf Pedagogy: A pedagogical movement based on a profound understanding of human dimensions to develop the potential of children in a respectful manner: doing, feeling, and thinking.
      • Respect: For oneself, others, and the entire community as a whole. Especially for the children and their developmental process.
      • Tolerance: Towards the individual differences of all members of our community.
      • Cooperation: All organization members contribute, from their position, to meet the needs, complete tasks, and achieve set goals.
      • Resilience: Facing difficulties with constructive and context-adapted responses, allowing us to move our school forward, learn from them, and continue to grow.
      •  Responsibility of Members: From individual freedom and families, each member assumes what derives from their actions, feelings, and thoughts for and on behalf of the association and the community.
