The Waldorf School of Garden City does not discriminate against students on the basis of race, color, religious creed, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, ancestry or disability. This policy applies to, but is not limited to, admission, financial aid, use of school facilities and participation in school activities.

Rethinking thinking:  Today's society places a strong emphasis on creating a testing culture.  At The Waldorf School of Garden City we believe it is time to rethink thinking.  Creativity is the new smart.  Conceptual thinking is the new smart.  The ability to synthesize disparate ideas is the new smart.  Rote memorization won't get you there.  But inspiration will.

Choosing a school is one of the biggest decisions you will make for your child and your family.  Parents choose The Waldorf School of Garden City because of:

  • rigorous academics enlivened by fine and practical arts, languages, music & drama
  • excellent teacher-student and teacher-parent relations
  • emphasis on family and community values
  • a strong reputation for environmentalism
  • expertise in child development

The Waldorf School of Garden City knows that the key to nurturing the capacities of the developing mind is inspirationInspired children are engaged learners.  When students graduate from the Waldorf School of Garden City, they do so as creative thinkers whose capacities for both analysis and imagination are not only treasured, but sought. 

We look forward to speaking with you.
