Alumni Corner

The Vancouver Waldorf School graduated its first High School class in 1984. Since then, our students have moved on to earn degrees and venture out as compassionate, free-thinking individuals who act with purpose and contribute to the betterment of the world. Our alumni and alumni parents are an essential part of our community and are the legacy of our school. So, whether you attended a few years of an early childhood program, graduated from our high school, or anywhere in between, we consider you a VWS alum and part of our family.
