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 think most students will say that applying to college is stressful. For me it has also been incredibly exciting, and I think my Waldorf education has taught me to look forward to what is ahead of me, even if I am uncertain about what is coming."High School Senior
"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
