Cedarwood School, located in SW Portland, Oregon, brings Waldorf education to life and strives to instill a love for learning. With a reverence for the developing child, and in harmony with social, emotional, and cognitive health, our curriculum weaves together the arts, academics and movement to nurture the wholistic well-being of each of our students.
We value a progressive approach to Waldorf, in which new ideas, practices, and styles are incorporated to support and enrich the student experience from early childhood programming through the completion of grade eight. Our pedagogy is forward-facing, reflective, and responsive to the demands and expectations of today’s world, while maintaining our core vision — to weave together the arts, academics, and movement with a reverence for the developing child.
Now more than ever, we are committed to meeting our students with an openness to possibility, providing time and tools for developing resiliency, and teaching them skills that can be used to turn challenges into opportunities.
