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.
