About Us

Inspiring Joyful Learning in the Twin Cities since 1981

Minnesota Waldorf School is a PreK – 8th grade independent school. Waldorf education uses proven learning techniques based on insight into brain and physical development. Our unique curriculum responds to the inquisitive and inquiring needs of the child at each stage of development.

Our beautiful campus is nestled on eight acres of wooded, green space. Near the intersection of Rice Street and County Road B, just north of Saint Paul, we are easily accessible from all parts of the Twin Cities metropolitan area. To inquire about enrollment or schedule a visit, contact us at enrollment@mnwaldorf.org.

Beginning with a single Kindergarten class in a church basement in 1981, Minnesota Waldorf School has grown to become a thriving preK – 8th grade school, nestled on eight acres of green space. We are easily accessible from all parts of the Twin Cities metropolitan area.

At MWS, we value the critical link between inspiration and education. Music, movement, foreign language, handwork and art are thoughtfully integrated with a strong core of humanities, math and sciences. Our classrooms and teachers offer a warm, nurturing environment that allows children’s capacities to unfold and grow. Our students rise to the challenges of learning with a sense of discovery and curiosity. As in most Waldorf schools, teachers remain with the same class from 1st through 8th grade, allowing for growth and a deepening sense of class community.

Minnesota Waldorf School is a non-sectarian independent Waldorf school, supported by tuition, contributions and voluntary efforts of parents and friends of the school. Our students come from a variety of social, economic, racial and cultural backgrounds.

As an independent school, Minnesota Waldorf School is an accredited member of the Association of Waldorf Schools of North America (AWSNA), the Independent Schools Association of the Central States (ISACS) and AdvancED. Minnesota Waldorf School is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, and does not discriminate on the basis of gender, ability, sexual orientation, race, color, religion, nationality or ethnic origin.
