A distinctive and powerful education

The Waldorf School of Garden City teaches not what to think, but how to think. In an atmosphere of free and open inquiry, students and teachers debate, collaborate, and investigate, challenging assumptions—and one another—with insights backed by rigorous study. This unique education transforms individuals, preparing and empowering them to make a positive impact on the world.

Our core classes are presented in blocks, called main lessons, which are innovative one-and-a-half hour seminars that allow teachers and students alike to fully explore a topic, both academically and practically. Our curriculum also incorporates lessons in woodworking, fiber arts, gardening, and movement, all of which are invaluable to the growth and development of children's dexterity, coordination, and personal philosophies as they blossom into our next generation's creators and innovators.


We want students to meet exciting people, try something different, discover something about themselves, and see the world from a new perspective; put simply we want students to learn.


There is an inviting atmosphere throughout our school created by happy children, engaged families, and dedicated teachers. As a parent—the opportunity to self-select your child’s peer group, one which is aligned with your family’s values and outlook on the world, is amongst the most important educational decisions you can make.


We provide unparalleled opportunities for children, by immersing them in our working farm, outdoor adventures and a community of adults who respect the natural world.


We take the best of classical education and make it relevant by intertwining the arts with academics, resulting in a synergistic experience that creates deeper meaning. No other form of education provides for an academic experience this enriching, authentic and joyful.


We provide opportunities for children to be challenged while creating an environment that allows them to be healthy, satisfied, and productive community members.


Our school includes a 200-acre farm campus, organic gardens, and a community that values well-balanced children.
