School Notes

  • AtThe Valley Waldorf City School, 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.
  • The Valley Waldorf 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.
  • Whether in person or our Beyond the Classroom program, our students delve into core academic subjects in imaginative and experiential lessons with their main class teacher as well as classes from specialist teachers in areas such as music, foreign language, hard and soft crafts (sewing, knitting, crochet, woodwork) and games (physical education).Teachers work with main lesson blocks, focusing immersively on a subject such as Language Arts, Science, Mathematics, or History for a period of 3-5 weeks at a time.

My son attended VWCS from grades 1-4. He thrived in their classrooms and with their low student:teacher ratio and hands-on, highly engaging education style. We recently moved out of state, but had we stayed in the area, he would still be a student here! We love VWCS.
