Our Unique Education Model – Why We Fundraise

Syringa Mountain School is a public school with curriculum guided by the Core Principles of Waldorf Education. We focus on developmentally appropriate learning and deliver curriculum to children in a multi-sensory, multiple intelligences way, that allows children to interact and interpret information using movement, music, artistic expression, and imagination.

We receive a significantly less amount of public funding. All local tax funding is allocated to non-charter public schools in the Wood River Valley. We receive approximately $12,000 less per student.

We Have a Robust Music Program

An integral part of Waldorf Education is movement and music. Beginning in Kindergarten, children sing, move and play the flute! We have a full time Music Teacher, Ms. Erin Mungall that teaches all grades singing and musical instrument. By 5th grade, students are in orchestra playing violin, bass, or cello. All grades prepare and practice for two main performances per year – Winter and Spring.  See Video on where the entire school is on stage.


To Grow We Must Expand

In order to maintain a functional music program, we have endeavored to complete an unfinished space in the upstairs of our building. As we are purchasing the building, this is a long-term investment for us.
