Westside Waldorf School
  • Established in 1989, the independent, not-for-profit Westside Waldorf School serves pre-K through the elementary grades.Waldorf education has been called "the world's best-kept educational secret." From the moment you walk into a classroom at the Westside Waldorf School, you sense something special: beautiful student artwork adorning the walls, children playing musical instruments, reciting lyrical verses, or enacting dramatic portrayals of historic or mythical people.
  • Most importantly, you see students who love learning, and a dedicated, Waldorf-trained faculty teaching in a way that inspires each child to bring out his or her best.The Westside Waldorf School is housed on two campuses: an Early Childhood Center in Santa Monica offers Parent-Child, Nursery and Kindergarten classes, while the McComb Campus in the Pacific Palisades encompasses a full pre-K through Eighth Grade program.

The only way private schools can build their financial security is through gifts. Major gifts offer proof of how deeply many donors feel about their private schools. Their munificence is a wonderful example to others.
