Visit BWWS

The best way to learn about Bright Water Waldorf School is through a school tour.  We invite you to explore our campus, meet our faculty, students, and parents, and learn why Waldorf education is the fastest growing independent school curriculums in the World. Today, there are more than 1,100 Waldorf schools and over 1,700 kindergartens in 80 countries worldwide. These schools exist in large cities and small towns, suburbs and rural enclaves. They have grown in response to the demand for education that truly meets the needs of childhood at all developmental levels.   We are located in the historic St. Nicholas building just north of St. Mark’s Cathedral.

Touring Bright Water

Our weekly Parent Tours for the 2019-2020 school year will commence in October. The tours are designed for adults only (except babes in arms) and last about one hour.  This year’s campus tours start at 8:45 AM on Mondays and reservations are required.

Middle School Open House

On December 5th from 6:30-7:30 PM, BWWS and the Middle Grades welcome families to take an experiential journey through grades 6, 7, and 8. The event will be led by the Middle School teachers. Attendees will learn more about the curriculum, extracurricular opportunities, and have questions answered directly from our middle school team. This will be a “hands on” evening for students considering Bright Water for middle school and parents will have an opportunity to learn more about the middle school curriculum.

BWWS has 8 parking spaces that are clearly marked as being for Bright Water Waldorf School. If you need to park in one of these spaces, please make sure that you register with the Main Office. You will be given a parking pass to display on your dashboard. Parking in these spaces will be limited to 2 hours and we will be monitoring these spaces.

 Where else can I park? Great question! Here is a link for a City of Seattle parking map. There are areas that allow 2 hour, 4 hour, or unlimited times in the surrounding streets. You may also choose to park at Volunteer Park and walk over to the school. We also encourage you to find ways to carpool or alternate ways of getting to school.
