Who We Are
A Vibrant Learning Community
We are dedicated to educating children to reach their full potential. Our faculty, staff, and board members are committed to creating a learning environment that nurtures creative, resilient, and confident thinkers to become lifelong learners.
As one of the premier preschool through grade 12 Waldorf schools in the country, and the only in Washington state, SWS stands as a leader in the Waldorf movement regionally and nationally.
Our practices, programs, and policies support diversity, equity, and inclusion across the breadth of our entire community to the depth of each individual.
Strong Leadership and Inspiring Vision
As a non-profit organization, Seattle Waldorf School is governed by a Board of Trustees. The trustees are volunteers; they include current parents, alumni parents, professional educators, community members, and friends of the school. The primary role of the Board is to hold the school’s mission and future in trust. The Board provides strategic direction and fiscal oversight for the school, and the Head of School is the sole employee of the Board.
Faculty and Staff
Our dedicated faculty and staff hold numerous degrees and certificates and participate each year in ongoing professional development opportunities. They model their love of interdisciplinary learning by incorporating artistic and movement activities into all academic subjects. Class teachers, specialty teachers, and advisors develop strong relationships with the students due to their multiyear connections, enabling teachers to better understand each student’s strengths and challenges and work as a team to support them.
Parent Association and Committees
The strength of our organization depends on the contributions of an actively engaged community of involved parents, grandparents, alumni, and friends. Every parent is a member of the Parent Association and is encouraged to participate in committee work (Service, Equity, Advisory, and more).
Board committees support financial health, advancement, and school facilities. Each class has one or more parent representatives to support communication between teachers and parents and help coordinate student activities. Additional committees support admission open houses and tours and giving campaigns.
