From Rudolf Steiner School New York City

Rudolf Steiner School introduces your children to an inspirational academic growth path that fosters their curiosity and confidence, nurtures their intellect and soul, and equips them to journey through life with purpose and agility. An oasis nestled in the heart of Manhattan, our school has been offering Waldorf education for over 90 years.
From our Parent-Child Program through High School, the Waldorf method embraces a threefold “head, heart, and hands approach”, balancing cognitive and emotional intelligence, integrating rigorous academic work with fine and practical arts, experiential lessons, and physical activity.
We hold classes in our two beautiful mansions on the Upper East Side, and outdoors in nearby Central Park. Our students study art along Museum Mile, explore nature in the park, and perform at Carnegie Hall. Steiner graduates are deep thinkers and creative innovators, who cherish their experience at our school, and their connection to the global Waldorf community.

    Rudolf Steiner School New York City Reviews

    Rudolf Steiner School has been a blessing for our family. This is a school that teaches to the whole child, providing a rigorous education for the mind, but also engaging the body and nurturing the spirit. Our two very different children have each been given the support they need and the freedom to be who they are and learn how they learn, in an environment in which they can thrive and become intellectually fearless. We feel lucky to be a part of this wonderful community.

    The school has done an excellent job of creating a truly well rounded student who is creative, artistic, articulate, analytical and a fearless critical thinker. The faculty and staff are all very approachable and are committed to helping each student reach their full potential.
    I go to Steiner and it’s overall an amazing community with one of the nicest and most experienced faculty. It’s quite a small school in number, but it’s what brings the whole community together.
