About Vancouver Waldorf School

At the Vancouver Waldorf School, students learn from an early age to engage in their own learning process. The imaginative play and grace of the Kindergarten years evolves into an experience of meeting the beauty and complexity of the world with sensitivity and hope. This foundation leads to a rich academic high school experience that supports young men and women in realizing their full potential as students, as people, as members of the human community.

In addition to imparting knowledge, the school’s intention is to foster in children a sense of reverence and respect for life. The close relationships between students and teachers enhance learning and the ability to explore new interests and take on new challenges. Students are engaged in a learning experience both artistic and academically challenging.

Based on the insights of scientist and philosopher Dr. Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925), Waldorf schools have developed into an international movement with nearly 1000 schools worldwide. By offering a learning method that strives to meet the physical, emotional, and intellectual dimensions of the developing child, the Vancouver Waldorf School integrates artistic activities and the movement arts throughout the curriculum, providing a balanced and well-rounded education since 1968.
