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.

"After raising four children to adulthood and moving them in and out of various schools and homeschooling, I have one major regret. I would now choose to send all my children to SWS for K-12."Alumni Parent
"The reason I send my daughter to SWS is that in the end the school produces an entirely different kind of human being, one who has had an authentic experience of freedom within an environment that is exquisitely well thought out, organized and structured."1st Grade Parent
