Choosing a school is one of the most significant decisions you will make for your child and your family. One of the best ways to determine if Waldorf education is the right choice is to visit us and experience the vitality, joy, and interest of WSP students engaged in all aspects of our curriculum. We invite you to spend a morning at our school, visit classes in session from pre-K through the grades, and experience our “heads, hearts, and hands” approach in action.
Tours are at 8:45 am until 10:15 am, every other Thursday morning. Prospective families are welcome for an overview of our programs from pre-K through the grades, and then to visit classes in session. Visits to our Little Friends Toddler Childcare are by appointment only, September – May. Formal tours of the school have concluded for the year and will begin again on Thursdays starting September 28, 2017. Please reserve your space ahead of time by contacting our Enrollment Coordinator Devon Wood at 412.441.5792, extension 224. Tours are for adults only, please.
We also offer ‘Discover Waldorf Education Open House’ informational sessions throughout the year where parents can hear brief overviews of our curriculum, visit classrooms, and speak with our faculty and staff as well as current parents and students. All Open Houses include a light dinner or brunch provided by our Parent Association.
Please join us for one of our upcoming Open Houses. Dates include a Middle School (6th-8th Grade) Open House for student applicants and their family on Monday, October 9, 2017 at 9:00 am.
