Waldorf education allows every child to have a direct experience with life. Its holistic and arts-integrated approach provides students with a built-in differentiated and hands-on learning experience that makes learning joyful and meaningful. Students aren't taught to the test and via rote memorization - they are actively engaging in their learning experience through meaningful ways; ways that are just now becoming popular in mainstream instruction such as Project Based Learning and the "5 E's", however, Waldorf has been around for 100 years!

In today's society, there is an increasing demand for individuals who are: a)confident problem solvers
b)compassionate leaders
c) interested in people and the world
d) socially and environmentally conscientious

At Portland Waldorf School, you will get ALL of the above.

My children spend their days at PWS learning with joy! The curriculum is vibrant and varied, all students participate in the full arts and movement curriculum, in addition, to their academic subjects. Students at this school are given a true love of learning and are fully supported by the amazing teachers at the school. What more could I ask for as a parent?
The high school at PWS is really remarkable. Academically challenging, artistically rich and small but mighty.
The small class size allows the teachers to really get to know each student and challenge them in the way that works for that student.
Each year each class has an outdoor week where they go camping, backpacking or to a farm. They also have a yearly project week where student leave their regular classes to spend the whole week on service, artistic or literary projects.
The arts program is rich and diverse- everything from bookbinding to blacksmithing, orchestra to African drumming, painting to basketweaving.
This is a special place to go to school.
