Each Seattle Waldorf student’s journey builds their determination and courage—as they pursue questions, find answers and take action.
Waldorf education is nearly a century old and works with a child’s head, heart and hands to develop each student’s innate talents and abilities.
Our students learn how to know themselves, synthesize both minute data and big ideas, and tackle challenges with confidence.
Wonder, reverence and joy are at the heart of our early childhood program. Experiences are enriched with outdoor exploration, painting, gardening, cooking and working with natural materials.
Students engage holistically in our integrated curriculum through academic inquiry, story, music, art, movement and nature—developing both their intellectual and creative abilities.
Thoughtful, in-depth morning lesson blocks provide time and space to explore subjects deeply. Afternoons include world languages, music and movement.
Students engage in a rich array of rigorous courses in the humanities, math, science and the arts. We foster curiosity, compassion, healthy relationships, emotional maturity and confidence.

"I love that technology is held at bay before high school. I believe that children will learn all the computer skills they need to know later in life. In the grades, I see electronics as distractions from the essential elements of learning, focusing on style over substance."Kindergarten Parent
"Our child is at SWS because the program’s focus is on supporting the healthy development of the whole child – emotionally, physically and intellectually. It’s not just about skill acquisition. It’s not just a layer of “social and emotional” curriculum added on the side."Kindergarten Parent
