About this school

Alabama Waldorf School is community-oriented, with a place for parents as well as children. The curriculum is established and proven, so time is spent with and on the students and not trying to determine what will be taught when. Students gain a sense of place and purpose as well as being taught lessons in everything from science and math to creative writing and handwork. Tours are given every Tuesday from 9-10am.
