Ashwood Waldorf School is an independent, pre-K through eighth grade learning community. Ashwood offers a rigorous, classical education structured around the stages of human development. Our professional faculty is devoted to challenging and engaging each student through a curriculum that integrates science and mathematics with literature, history, and the arts. Ashwood graduates are vibrant, balanced and confident individuals with the initiative to learn, adapt, and thrive in a changing world.
