Waldorf education is designed to cultivate children's inherent curiosity and love of learning. Our approach “brings forth” the gifts that all children possess so that they will develop clear, creative thoughts, balance and compassion in their feelings, and initiative and conscience in their work.
Our community of educators and parents believe that every child has unique gifts and talents to share with the world. Our aim is to graduate students who are capable of independent, critical and creative thinking and who will enter adult life with the confidence and knowledge needed to take on the next level of challenges.
Waldorf education offers a rich academic and artistic curriculum for all grades, including science, mathematics, language arts, literature, history, geography, fine and practical arts, foreign language, music, and physical education. Our school is fully accredited by ISACS (Independent Schools of the Central States) and by AWSNA (Association of Waldorf Schools of North America). The depth of the curriculum, diversity and sense of community students experience at Detroit Waldorf School provides the finest independent school education in Detroit.
The Detroit Waldorf School's mission is to provide a Waldorf education to as many children as possible in Detroit and Southeast Michigan, and to serve a geographically, racially and socio-economically diverse student body.
