The independent, not-for-profit Westside Waldorf School serves Pre-K through the elementary grades. Established in 1989, it is one of more than 800 Waldorf schools worldwide.
A Waldorf education has been called "the world's best kept education secret". Its curriculum seeks to nourish the emotions and imaginations of children as well as their intellect.
The Atlantic Monthly recently highlighted the fast-growing educational movement in a feature article, "Schooling the Imagination" describing the Waldorf approach as "a unique blend of progressive and traditional methods" with imagination at its heart.

"Receive the children with reverence
Educate them with love
Send them forth in freedom."
~Dr. Rudolf Steiner, Founder of Waldorf Education
"The Importance of storytelling, of the natural rhythms of daily life, of the evolutionary changes in the child, of art as the necessary underpinning of learning, and of the aesthetic environment of the whole - all basic to Waldorf Education for the past 70 years - are being "discovered" and verified by researchers unconnected to the Waldorf Movement."
