The Pasadena Waldorf Community:
Diverse, Involved, Supportive
Parental involvement is a strong predictor of children’s success, and Pasadena Waldorf offers parents a variety of meaningful opportunities to make a real difference in their child’s education, including volunteering to help with class activities and performances, going on field trips, and assisting with school-wide festivals and fund raising events. Many parents also serve the school through collaborative work on our Parent Council, on various committees, or on our Board of Trustees.
Our families come from many cultural, religious, and occupational backgrounds, but each family is here because it is drawn to and supports Our Mission. While we highly value the many ways parents enhance the community, the most important contribution parents make to their children’s education is at home. All parents are asked to make their home a place that reflects the values of Waldorf education and offers children a sense of continuity and coherence between school and home.
"There is a real connection between the parents in our school community. We care about the wellbeing of each other’s children and step up to help out. PWS is an island of humanity with a small town feel.”
