Cultivating Creative Minds,
Capable Hands, and Compassionate Hearts

Bright Water Waldorf School offers children a dynamic education that grounds students academically and socially, preparing them to consciously navigate the complexities of our time. Students are immersed in an environment that supports the whole child, educates by example, and teaches arts and sciences using physical movement and academic rigor. Waldorf education helps children grow their understanding, resilience, and a sense of their own capabilities.
