What is the typical schedule for a school day?

Here I can make some general comments; for more detail, ask the specific Waldorf school you are considering.

For grades 1-8, intellectual learning activities are concentrated in the morning, with more of the physical activity in the afternoon. The specific balance and mix, of course, changes from one grade to another.

The day begins with a “main lesson block”, in which the class engages in a variety of activities that are all focused on a single subject for a long, uninterrupted stretch of time which may well be two hours. This includes movement, review, practice and introduction of new material. For more detail on this lesson structure, as well as information about the curriculum, you may want to check out this article published by AWSNA.
