Eugene Waldorf School
Established in 1980, the Eugene Waldorf School believes that children deserve an inspired education that allows them to grow up strong, happy and healthy. Children thrive in our school, which serves students in preschool through grade eight. Our dedicated and loving teachers provide a solid foundation for lifelong learning by joyfully immersing children in art, music, math, language, movement and play.
Our mission is to educate the whole child for the future, equally engaging body, mind, and spirit.Our teachers foster a love of learning by enlivening the imagination, strengthening the creative will, deepening understanding, and awakening a sense of community. Our academic program integrates the arts, humanities, and sciences. We strive to help all children develop their unique physical, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual capacities. This enables each individual to responsibly enter in freedom into an ever-changing local and global community.
Children through 6 years old are warmly welcome to play in an early childhood classroom while parents learn more about Waldorf education and talk with teachers. Elementary school teachers will also be available in the grades building for conversation and touring the school. All are welcome.
