Learn the many ways to support WSMC



Waldorf education is centered on nurturing an individual's inner ability to know and practice peace.

Community thrives on the virtues of each individual.

In 1972, a group of courageous parents fueled by passion and determination, and deeply inspired by Rudolf Steiner's educational philosophy imagined and built our small school.

Waldorf education has been a popular choice for families and educators. The dedication and investment of countless teachers on our campus have helped shape our vision and improve our educational programs. As an independent school, WSMC recognizes the unique needs of each child and teachers have the freedom to create a curriculum that is tailored to the student’s individual developmental needs, with love and reverence.
