The Brooklyn Waldorf School is an independent school that adapts the traditional methods of Rudolf Steiner to the unique, urban environment of Brooklyn, New York. The School is conveniently located in historic Bedford-Stuyvesant.
Our Early Childhood program brings young children into contact with nature within our school grounds and provides beautiful classrooms where they can explore and play together imaginatively.
BWS offers a robust curriculum for Grades 1-8 that emphasizes personal and artistic exploration within a classical education. Our students grow into inquisitive adolescents with exceptional independence of thought. And they move on to the high schools (independent, private, public, and boarding) of their choice with a passion for learning.
This community begins with you. Our diverse parent body is the backbone of life at BWS. From festival volunteer work to weekend trips, to auctioning goods and services, to supporting our annual fund, parents work together with faculty and staff to build The Brooklyn Waldorf School.
