Cedarwood Waldorf School is a warm and vibrant community of committed teachers and parents dedicated to the physical, emotional, spiritual, and intellectual development of children.
Established in 1997, Cedarwood now offers pre-kindergarten through 8th grade and a full array of subject classes, including music, orchestra, Spanish, Japanese, movement, eurythmy, handwork and woodworking.
Academic lessons integrate artistic activities on a daily basis.
Cedarwood is located in Portland, Oregon, just south of downtown at 3030 SW Second Avenue in the historic Neighborhood House, across the street from Lair Hill Park.
This informative event provides a glimpse into our vibrant school community.
You and your children will have the opportunity to participate in bread baking and warm beeswax modeling in the Kindergarten classrooms.
Grades students will perform marimba, circus arts, and orchestra pieces.
Student art work will also be on display.
Two different presentations will be offered as well.
One will provide a general overview of Waldorf education; the other will focus on how Cedarwood Waldorf School meets the needs of the middle school child.
Cedarwood School Brings Waldorf Education to life and strives to instill a love for learning.
Our curriculum weaves together the arts, academics and movement, with a reverence for the developing child.
We nurture our children's spirituality, cultivate their ability to think imaginatively and inspire them to seek the truth.
