ABOUT THE WALDORF SCHOOL OF MENDOCINO COUNTY

The Waldorf School of Mendocino County was founded with one purpose - to build a space for all students to grow, learn and create with each passing day. Through a unique teaching approach and a truly passionate faculty, we help students develop academically and personally to their full potential. 

Founded in 1972, the Waldorf School of Mendocino County is the oldest independent school in Mendocino County. We are approaching our 50th birthday with great excitement!

OUR PROGRAMS

Private School in Mendocino County

This school has given our daughter something she’s never had at any other school—the personal attention to not just her academics but also her emotional and developmental growth. She went from hating school to loving it the day we transferred her here, and we couldn’t be happier.

-Lux Karpov-Kinrade, WSMC Parent
