The World Needs More Seattle Waldorf Graduates
At Seattle Waldorf School, we educate with intention. Whether your child is an emerging scientist, artist, or entrepreneur (or all three!), we recognize that each child is on a unique educational path. Our learning environment invites each student to engage in a vibrant curriculum comprising academics, arts, outdoors, and athletics to support their healthy development and build a strong foundation for success. Waldorf graduates pursue fulfilling careers in science, technology, health, and education, among others, and earn Ph.D.s at a higher rate than the national average for independent schools.
Students learn to cultivate trusting and inclusive relationships with teachers, classmates, and mentors. They also connect deeply to subjects because of the personal, engaging, and experiential nature of our learning environment. Seattle Waldorf graduates see an interrelated world where success depends on healthy connections.
Our faculty intentionally create collaborative, team-based opportunities to learn inside and outside the classroom. Students develop the ability to persevere through challenges and simplify when distractions arise. Graduates leave our school with a sense of responsibility and determination to address any challenge.
Teachers design lessons to address complex issues of the day. Students gain a greater perspective that sustains their love of asking questions and solving problems. We prepare students to create a meaningful future for themselves and others.

Reflecting on the Value of Rhythm
by Hannah Adams Rhythm is a word we come across very often in Waldorf education. There are many questions that may...
Preschool & Grade 1 Parent
“At Seattle Waldorf School teachers feel like family, the curriculum supports the whole child, and the community is supportive, engaged, and inspired.”
Middle School Class Teacher
“When I come to class every day, I strive to cultivate in my students a sense of responsibility. Responsibility not only for their friends and family, but for the wider human condition and our environment overall. No matter where my students go in life, or what college or career they choose, I hope that they always carry forth this understanding of the larger world and how they can contribute to its betterment.”
High School Student
“My favorite thing about SWS is the community. I love waking up and walking through the doors every single day and just feeling like everybody is there to support me—my teachers, my classmates, and my closest friends.”
We acknowledge that we reside on the ancestral lands of the Coast Salish peoples who have stewarded this land for generations. We pay our respect to the Elders and their descendants, past, present, and future, and honor with gratitude the land, plants, and animals.
