Eugene Waldorf High School Initiative
We are a group of parents and teachers committed to bringing a fully-accredited four-year independent Waldorf high school to Eugene, Oregon.
The high school will utilize the standardized Waldorf curriculum developed by Rudolf Steiner and will be governed by the Association of Waldorf Schools of North America (AWSNA). EWHS has applied to be a “developing school” as designated by AWSNA as the first step in pursuing full accreditation.
Our mission: Our school is dedicated to inspiring high school students to achieve their highest potential by providing a balanced and rigorous education.
Our vision: Our pedagogy addresses and supports the physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual needs of young people. The high school curriculum emphasizes the development of creative thinking, artistic expression and meaningful activity. Our community values equally the developing individuality of each student and the impulse to serve humankind in freedom out of our highest ideals.
Meeting since summer 2012, we are a 501(c)3 nonprofit. The board holds open meetings monthly and is currently working toward the pioneer freshman class to begin lessons September 2020 or 2021. There are work groups for teacher search, site acquisition, fundraising and enrollment. If you are interested in getting involved, email info@EugeneWaldorfHighSchool.org or visit us on our facebook page Eugene Waldorf High School and join our mailing list today!
Although a separate organization than the local k-8 Eugene Waldorf School, we work closely with them and we both see the mutual benefits of expanding Waldorf education to the high school years in Eugene.
