I’ve known rivers: I’ve known rivers ancient as the world and older than the flow of human blood in human veins.
My soul has grown deep like the rivers.
I bathed in the Euphrates when dawns were young. I built my hut near the Congo and it lulled me to sleep. I looked upon the Nile and raised the pyramids above it.
I heard the singing of the Mississippi when Abe Lincoln went down to New Orleans, and I’ve seen its muddy bosom turn all golden in the sunset.
I’ve known rivers: Ancient, dusky rivers.
My soul has grown deep like the rivers. ~Langston Hughes

The Waldorf School of St. Louis is located in the heartland, at a very special place where two might rivers converge. Hear the lure of the rivers – heed the call of your class – come grow deep with us, like our rivers.

The city of Saint Louis is at the heart of the continent, and Saint Louisans enjoy a low cost of living and a small, neighborhood feel coupled with the advantages of a major metropolitan area, such as top-rated health care and a thriving arts community. St. Louis residents enjoy free or extremely low-cost admission to many museums, gardens, nature preserves, The Saint Louis Zoo, The Saint Louis Science Center, the Municipal Opera, and other major attractions. Saint Louis also boasts over 100 parks, including Tower Grove and Forest Park, farmers’ markets in season, and over 200 miles of biking, cycling, and walking trails. The Saint Louis area is fortunate to have an Anthroposophical Physician who is also Board Certified in Family Medicine and Homeotherapeutics and a Camphill community in a nearby city.
