What is Waldorf education?
What is Waldorf education?

High School

Our high school provides a rigorous curriculum grounded in the classics and engaged in the modern world. Our students are active learners and flexible thinkers with the confidence and creativity to face the challenges of our world.

High School

Grade School

Setting the stage for a love of learning, our grade school offers much more than the memorization of formulas and facts. In addition to the three “R’s,” students’ imaginations are engaged through music, art, drama, movement, and crafts.

Lower Grades
Middle Grades

Early Childhood

Our early childhood programs are devoted to preserving the joy, wonder and imagination of the young child from birth through to grade school readiness. Children play, learn, and grow in nurturing and inspiring spaces both indoors and out.

Early Childhood

The Vancouver Waldorf School provides an experiential, age-appropriate approach to education.

We support the development of the whole child with a curriculum that integrates academics, movement and the arts.
