Discover Waldorf Education

Waldorf Education is based on educator and philosopher Rudolf Steiner’s (1861-1925) research on child development. The Waldorf approach recognizes the simple insight that children learn in distinctly different ways at different stages of their development.

Waldorf teachers are dedicated to teaching in ways that profoundly meet the needs of the developing human being, and the curriculum fosters an unfolding of the student’s natural capacities. In classrooms filled with light and life, Waldorf students learn traditional academic subjects through distinctive and time-tested teaching methods that serve their intellectual, physical, emotional, and spiritual development. Engaging the hands, heart, and mind cultivates inner enthusiasm for learning.

Part of a worldwide educational movement that began over 90 years ago, Pasadena Waldorf School is a leading independent school in the San Gabriel Valley, which helps families raise well-balanced, multifaceted young people since 1979.
