The City School: A Waldorf Initiative in Los Angeles
The City School is a Waldorf Initiative in Los Angeles and The San Fernando Valley serving Pre-school through Grade 8.
We offer affordable Waldorf education where we foster the children’s love of learning and nurture their physical, emotional, intellectual and social capacities by applying the Waldorf principles designed by Rudolph Steiner featuring a developmentally-staged and arts-oriented education.
I am convinced that Waldorf schools deliver an essential alternative to our existing systems. A Waldorf education provides students with an approach to learning which successfully integrates the arts and sciences with the practical tools necessary to succeed in these challenging times. I am personally very grateful for the foundation that was laid during my formative years at Waldorf.”
