What is smart? Is it acing a standardized test? Or something deeper?

Waldorf education understands that developing human potential requires far more than just academics. We help children use their natural curiosity to create their own path, intellectually, physically, and emotionally. Waldorf is one of today’s fastest-growing educational movements. We’d love to show you why.

About Waldorf School

About our school

Our historic, urban campus is located in the thriving Eat Street neighborhood just south of downtown Minneapolis, a short walk from Fair Oaks Park, the Children’s Theater, and the world-renowned Minneapolis Institute of Arts. Every school day, we welcome more than 260 students, from preschool to 8th grade.

Waldorf School Admissions


Our school is best understood in person, for you and for your child. That’s why our simple three-step application process emphasizes one-on-one tours and time with your child’s prospective class.
