Michael Park School is a Waldorf school located in Auckland, New Zealand The school takes students from age 4 (Kindergarten) to school-leaving age (Form 7/Year 13). The Steiner School refers to the years 2 to 13 as Class 1 to Class 12.
Unlike 'conventional' state schools, the Steiner philosophy encourages a slightly later development, and a more creative environment. Another unique aspect of Michael Park is their keen eye for aesthetics. The belief is that more graceful architecture will be beneficial to student's learning, meaning that there are less right angles in the school buildings and more curves.
