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.
