- What we do:
- At The City School of Los Angeles, we recognize the need for an enlivened and creative approach to education specific to our times. Using a curriculum inspired by Waldorf Pedagogy we believe in Waldorf Education as an art form, and we strive for it to be a focal point for cultural events and work thoroughly to participate in the dynamic process of community building. Our Community is dedicated to bringing opportunities in education for children and families in the Los Angeles area.
- Who Attends The City School:
- The City School is a diverse and international community of families from a broad range of cultural, ethnic, and socio-economic backgrounds. The neighborhood of the school reflects this diverse, multicultural heritage and the history of the Los Angeles urban landscape.
- What we Learn:

- A Thriving Community:

Our faculty are all certified, experienced Waldorf teachers and are dedicated to the mission of the school.
