About Us

Inspiring Joyful Learning in the Twin Cities since 1981

Beginning with a single Kindergarten class in a church basement in 1981, Minnesota Waldorf School has grown to become a thriving pre-K through 8th grade school, nestled on eight acres of green space. We are easily accessible from all parts of the Twin Cities metropolitan area. To inquire about admissions or to schedule a tour contact: enrollment@mnwaldorf.org.

At MWS, we recognize the critical link between inspiration and education. A strong core of language arts, math, science, and humanities are skillfully supported by art, music, movement, foreign language, agriculture and handwork. Students are academically challenged while developing their sense of discovery and curiosity. Our classrooms and teachers offer a joyful, nurturing environment that allows children’s natural capacities for learning to unfold. Teachers remain with the same class from 1st through 8th grade, providing a secure foundation for positive relationships to grow between the class and the teacher.

Minnesota Waldorf School is a non-sectarian independent 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), a provisional member of  the Independent Schools Association of the Central States (ISACS). 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.
