A Better Way to Learn
At Washington Waldorf, we encourage the connections that broaden students’ experience and help them grow in new directions. Our teachers incorporate academic, artistic, and practical elements into every subject, creating memorable lessons—strong individuals and highly successful scholars—along the way.
The Washington Waldorf School cultivates each student’s capacity to think clearly, feel compassionately, and act purposefully in the world. We are committed to the educational movement inspired by the pioneering work of Rudolf Steiner and advanced by Waldorf teachers worldwide.
