Why Waldorf

Toronto Waldorf School is part of an educational community of 2,500 schools and kindergartens that circle the globe. One of the largest and fastest-growing educational approaches in the world, Waldorf schools have supported students in over 70 countries for over 90 years.

It is our experience that nearly 100% of our graduates get into a university or other post-secondary program of their choice. Here are some statistics on North American Waldorf graduates. Many Waldorf alumni/ae proceed to sucessful careers as lawyers, artists, scientists, musicians and more. Watch our alumni/ae video profiles here to see how their Waldorf education helps them in their professional lives. Here is a short list of well-known US Waldorf almuni/ae and famous Waldorf graduates globally.

While each Waldorf school is independent, all share an approach that is fundamentally unique.

Toronto Waldorf School

Founded in 1968, Toronto Waldorf School has developed a fully accredited curriculum from Parent-Infant through Grade 12. This education from a deeper perspective™ is an education for life:

  • We teach children how to think creatively to solve problems
  • We help children develop a personal connection to the world, community, nature and self
  • We help children become centred, having confidence to pursue life with purpose

Toronto Waldorf School's deeper perspective is built upon these foundations:

  • Academic Integration
  • The Right Thing at the Right Time
  • How to Think, Not What to Think
  • Appreciation of Individuality
  • Environmental Stewardship
  • Experiential Learning
  • Commitment to Culture & Community
