Sacramento Waldorf School is at an exciting point in its 64-year history. We are deeply engaged in developing anti-bias pedagogy and policies, auditing our curriculum for values alignment, and working on the next evolution of our Waldorf education program. Waldorf schools, as intentional cultural institutions, have a responsibility to actualize social renewal in a living and responsive way. We believe that knowledge has been collectively created, is owned by all, and should be utilized in service of humanity. SWS is committed to welcoming and affirming diverse experiences and creating shared practices that represent all people in our learning community.

Education always takes place within the context of relationship at Sacramento Waldorf School. Whether it is in the classroom, in the lab, on the playing field, on the farm, in the studio, on stage, or in any of our many campus venues, thoughtful and supportive relationships create engaged learning. The smaller size of our school allows students to develop meaningful relationships with both peers and teachers. Young people are nurtured and challenged over the course of their education to develop a strong sense of self which will be of service to their communities.
