All School 2


Walk into our school and you will immediately realize that you’re in a unique educational environment. When you see classrooms full of students who love their teachers, their classmates, and their school, you may realize that this is the right place for your child.


At our school we believe that education should

  • develop the essential humanity of each child
  • address the whole human being in body, soul and spirit
  • create a better future by developing strong individuals who can work with others

It takes a village

Richmond Waldorf School is a vibrant learning community. All of us – students, parents, and teachers – are learners on a path of self-discovery. We work together to help each other find our higher selves.

Towards a more human future

The future will need self-aware, compassionate, capable human beings who will make the world a better place. We seek to develop these capacities in our students through

  • rigorous academic program that helps students develop clear, creative thinking.
  • supportive social environment that builds students’ self awareness and their interest in others.
  • daily classes in the fine arts and practical arts that teach students to express themselves and to deal with the world with confidence.
