Garden City

Established in 1947, our eleven-acre campus is located in suburban Garden City, Long Island, New York.

In addition to classrooms and offices, the buildings house a cafeteria, gym with stage, eurythmy room with stage, science labs, art studios and music rooms.

Playgrounds, gardens and playing fields are bordered by a wooded “Nature Trail” which provides a visual and environmental boundary from the suburban houses and university buildings which surround us. The Nursery through twelfth grade curriculum is supplemented by a number of auxiliary programs, including the Parent-Child Program, a summer day camp and extended-day program in Garden City, and our 250-acre extension campus and farm located in Marlborough, New Hampshire.

The Waldorf School of Garden City is an independent college preparatory day school for children in Nursery through Twelfth Grade.    Directly adjacent to Adelphi University, high school students are able to earn college credit through our unique partnership with Adelphi University.  The community is economically, geographically  and culturally diverse. We have active involvement from the alumni and parent communities, who provide both financial and volunteer support for our School.

New Hampshire

The Waldorf School of Garden City owns Glen Brook which is located in Marlborough, New Hampshire.

Situated in southwestern New Hampshire near Mt. Monadnock, this beautiful property includes several houses over 250-acres, a working farm with animals, large organic gardens, a natural lake, and miles of trails to explore the surrounding mountains and woodlands.

Starting in the third grade students go on one-week trips each year where they work side by side to tend to the farm animals, prepare meals, cut and split wood, maintain buildings and grounds and complete whatever chores this rural setting requires. Family programs involving maple sugaring, camping and harvesting are also available.

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.
