TRVCS creates a school community working out of the core principles of Public Waldorf Education for students learning at home. Students participate in weekly/daily Zoom classes including main lesson, Gardening, Music, Spanish, and Practical Arts. Students participate in class with other virtual students that are their same age/grade. There are approximately seven children in each class. Classes are around 45 minutes each and vary in quantity and duration depending on the students age.
