Sacramento Waldorf High School

The Sacramento Waldorf School High School has been preparing young people to live fulfilling lives for more than 30 years.  We provide a comprehensive educational experience that offers rigorous challenges in sciences, humanities, arts, and mathematics within a community of passionate students, dedicated teachers, and involved parents. 

At the Sacramento Waldorf School High School, arts permeate the intellectually challenging curriculum.  Education-in the classroom, in the lab, on the playing field, on the working farm, in the studio, on stage- always occurs within the context of relationship. 

The Waldorf approach is experiential and interdisciplinary.  Students spend considerable time with the real world applications of concepts presented in the classroom.  In trigonometry, our students survey the campus; in biology they evaluate the ecosystem of our stream; in architecture, they visit neighborhoods and develop models for redevelopment.  In this way, students deepen their learning and do far more than simply memorize; they experience and fully engage with their studies. 

Subjects are studied in concert, not in isolation.  Our teachers demonstrate the interconnectedness of the disciplines - how, for example, history and civics have had a profound influence on the development of the arts and sciences.  Approaching a subject from a variety of perspectives provides our students with a multi-faceted understanding of complex issues and a more global approach to learning and thinking. 

The small  size of the school allows for students to develop meaningful relationships with both peers and teachers.  Learning occurs in a cooperative yet diverse environment.  Our young men and women are challenged to consider the ethical components of their studies and lives in our school community.  This comprehensive educational experience prepares graduates to step into the world as confident, compassionate, resilient, and well-rounded individuals with a capacity for creative, flexible, independent thought. 

Sacramento Waldorf School High School graduates have gone on to excel at institutions such as Stanford, Rhode Island School of Design, Brown, UC Berkeley, Grinnell College, Columbia University, and NYU and have become physicians, documentary filmmakers, psychologists, attorneys, entrepreneurs, computer animators, designers, teachers, scholars, and more.
