Green in
Garden City

A fundamental aspect of the Waldorf School of Garden City is a commitment to nurture and sustain the natural world. Through curriculum and activities such as gardening, composting, and learning about twenty-first centruy food production, students learn to become stewards of the environment in which they live.

"Thankfully, the Waldorf curriculum, which stresses horticulture and ecology, connects students to the land in ways that promote our role as stewards of the earth. This collective sense of responsibility infuses our life with greater meaning and purpose. Along with a rich and fertile imagination, it helps us carve out a pathway steeped in altruism and goodwill."

~Current Parent

"One of the greatest joys of parenting is seeing the wonder and curiosity in your child’s eyes when they realize the greater importance of the processes around them and their personal connections with those processes. Children learn through experience; they learn by seeing, smelling, tasting, and touching. At the Waldorf School of Garden City we keep these experiences alive and central in all the work that we do."

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.
