Waldorf Schools are Media Literacy Role Models

Social-Emotional Learning at the Vancouver Waldorf School. Children working together to build a garden box.

Waldorf education emphasizes thoughtful, intentional and developmentally appropriate technology use. We advocate for a low-tech approach in early childhood and the elementary grades, followed by a curriculum in middle and high school that helps students understand tech as a tool, and engages them in conversations around digital ethics, privacy, media literacy, and balanced use of social media and technology. Our approach gives Waldorf graduates the tools and knowledge they need to be independent, creative and ethical digital citizens.

We are currently accepting applications. We have a rolling admissions policy and accept students throughout the year when space is available. Join an information session or meet individually with our Admissions Coordinator to learn more about the Vancouver Waldorf School.
