The Denver Waldorf School is thrilled to announce that we have purchased a new, larger campus located at S. Pennsylvania St. and Evans Avenue in Denver. It will be a busy and eventful summer as we bid farewell to our current campus on Fillmore Street, our home for over 10 years, and prepare to make a new home across town. This page serves as a clearinghouse of information about the move, including photos, press information and opportunities to get involved through volunteering and contributing to our Capital Campaign. We’re looking forward to our next 40 years in Denver!
The Denver Waldorf School (DWS) is excited to announce their relocation to a new, larger campus at Evans Avenue and S. Pennsylvania Street in Denver. This move is an important milestone in the 40-year history of the school, and corresponds with the school’s upcoming accreditation by the Association of Colorado Independent Schools.
At more than 80,000 square feet, this new building is nearly double the size of the school’s current facility. The new campus offers two gymnasiums, a full theatrical stage, and abundant outdoor playing fields. The campus is located adjacent to Harvard Gulch Park, which provides access to natural open space that will further enhance The Denver Waldorf School’s educational programs.
“With the additional space, we can now realize our full vision for the school’s curriculum. This campus is full of amenities, including dedicated spaces for practical and performing arts, two gyms, science labs, and a library, among other highlights. We can expand our enrollment, particularly in the high school, which will foster a more vibrant experience for our students,” said Judy Lucas, the Administrative Director of The Denver Waldorf School.
DWS entered into a contract with Denver Christian Schools to buy the property. Denver Christian Schools are consolidating their three existing campuses and moving to a new location in Lakewood.
“This new campus gives our kids the chance to have a Waldorf education enhanced by even more space and greater resources. We are truly looking forward to this new opportunity,” said Anne Macomber, parent of two DWS students. DWS expects to open its doors on the Pennsylvania St. campus on August 29, in time for the start of the 2014-15 school year.
