Nestled in the beautiful Rawhide Valley, Sierra Waldorf School offers classes from Kindergarten through eighth grade.
Sierra Waldorf School is dedicated to cultivating the capacities of each child through a developmentally respectful education based on the work of Rudolf Steiner, the founder of Waldorf Education.
We create an environment that respects the individuality of each child, their higher spiritual nature and their connection to the world as a whole.
The Sierra Waldorf School strives to create a community of caring adults who are committed to self-development, social responsibility and servant leadership.
Sierra Waldorf School recognizes that the young child learns primarily through imitation and example.
Great care is taken to provide an environment that brings nurturing warmth, guidance, and cooperation to a child's world of constructive fantasy and imagination.
