Why Waldorf Now?

More than ever, our students need an education that fosters resilience, adaptability, compassion, and confidence. They need the intentional integration of high academics, arts, music, and movement to educate the whole human. Welcome to The Denver Waldorf School.

Our way of being

As an urban, independent Waldorf school, we believe in a liberal arts education that prepares students for their next steps and cultivates eco-sustainability, social renewal, truth, beauty, and goodness. We also believe it is our responsibility to bear witness to what is happening in the world, elevate the voices of marginalized people, change the course of inequities, and break down structural prejudice in all forms where it exists, particularly in Waldorf education.

Our Aim

Step inside

One of the few Denver schools to offer in-person tours and in-person shadowing, we have strived diligently to be able to show you our campus, our curriculum, and our community while following Colorado’s health and safety guidelines. Learn more about our programs for preschool, elementary, middle, and high school students.

The Wisdom of Play in Early Childhood

Preschool through High School

From our Starflower Preschool to the lively halls of our high school, the Waldorf experience takes a hand-on approach to education. We are founded on Rudolf Steiner’s humanitarian curriculum, a robust and dynamic program taught throughout the world for more than 100 years.

Developing Character in High School

Full steam ahead

Our ability to stay in-person during the pandemic afforded us the unique opportunity to expand our high school program even further. When our graduates step beyond our doors and courageously out into the world, they embrace the future as engaged global citizens and stewards of the planet.
