Portland Waldorf School (PWS) is Oregon’s oldest Waldorf school and the only one serving students from preschool through high school. Its faculty is guided by the insights of Rudolf Steiner and work collaboratively to educate children for the whole of life by nurturing the imagination cultivating the intellect and recognizing the spirit of each child.
The curriculum at PWS is uniquely designed to provide a balanced education that integrates rigorous academics with richly creative arts while also meeting the needs of each student’s age and state of development. Rather than teaching to a test PWS aims to inspire in each student a lifelong love of learning preparing young people for college and world citizenship.
From its 7.2 acre campus Portland Waldorf School students teachers and parents are dedicated to creating a community with a deep connection to the land beneath us and the world around us. The environment is a living laboratory for the history science math and artistry PWS students encounter in their classrooms.
PWS is centrally located in historic downtown Milwaukie just minutes from Portland and easily accessible via TriMet’s Orange Line and multiple bus lines.
