Toronto Waldorf School, founded
in 1968, serves over 290 students and their parents from
birth through Grade 12. We are located just north of Toronto,
Ontario on about 20 acres including a large wooded area
and a section of protected ecological ravine. We serve a
diverse multicultural community.
Our unique building was designed
to be a Waldorf school from the ground up. We have a large
and dynamic faculty and staff, with a diverse mix of experience
and backgrounds. Several anthroposophically-based organizations
work alongside us on our campus including a residence for
seniors, an anthroposophically-based medical practice, and
the Rudolf Steiner Centre for adult education.
Our school is accredited by

Graduation Diploma which enables University and College
