  • Washington Waldorf School's mission is to educate and inspire our students to develop a life-long love of learning based on the balance of academic, artistic, and practical skills; a clear-thinking mind with a compassionate heart; an appreciation of truth and beauty; a practical, creative will; a respect and love for humanity and nature; and a confidence in the ability to make a positive difference in the world.
  • Together, parents, teachers, and alumni strive to fulfill the impulse of Waldorf education by promoting a culturally, socially, and economically diverse school, extending this initiative to the wider community.

Our experience has been very positive with WWS. The faculty show a great deal of care for the students as people but also with respect to their progress with the curriculum. They have wonderful parent education opportunities. Additionally, the school does an exceptional job of addressing issues that rise to the surface. It is a great choice of school!
