Waldorf School of Pittsburgh is an independent school, committed to fully developing the human potential of each and every child enrolled here, thus reflecting the mission of Waldorf education: To receive the child with reverence, to educate the child with love, to send the child forth with freedom.


Waldorf pedagogy is founded on principles that underscore our common humanity and the equality of all people. We welcome children of all races, ethnic and cultural backgrounds, and religions. We believe that the educational experience of all children is enriched when they play and learn in the company of peers from diverse economic and cultural backgrounds.

 

It is therefore the policy of Waldorf School of Pittsburgh to promote diversity within the student body, the faculty, and the curriculum so that it mirrors the richness of the community in which we live. To fulfill these goals, we commit ourselves to the following actions:

  • We will strive to promote the school and Waldorf pedagogy to people from diverse economic and cultural backgrounds.

  • We invite and encourage the parents of our students to share their backgrounds with their children’s teachers. Through stories, songs, myths, and customs, we can share the richness of our diversity and enhance the community.

  • The faculty will engage in a continuing review of the school curriculum to ensure that the richness and variety of our diverse heritage is communicated to the children in a manner that is both consistent with the principles of Waldorf pedagogy and Anthroposophy.
