Lower School Campus
We are happy to announce that students at WSSD are enjoying in-person learning in our outdoor classrooms! We also have hybrid and distant learning options for families that prefer it.
We are still enrolling for the 2020-21 school year! This virtual tour will give you a real taste of how our school looks and feels..it’s natural and creative and full of life when the children are on campus. Keep in mind this tour was created pre-covid. To see the updated videos and pictures please visit our social media sites like Facebook and Instagram. We currently are teaching in outdoor classrooms and we are so thrilled that we have the space to accommodate this outside experience! Because of this, the class sizes are smaller to honor social distancing guidelines. Placement is limited and classes are filling. We are not doing On-campus tours at this time.
Once you’ve done your research, please RSVP to Admissions@waldorfsandiego.org for the next Zoom Waldorf 101 Q&A Session. These are held bi-monthly for all perspective parents and it’s the perfect place to get all your curriculum and other questions answered!
High School Campus
As part of the enrollment process we offer several opportunities for your little one to get to know our school and their class teacher:
- A scheduled playdate for children and parents in our early childhood playground
- Visit the classroom for Cubby Day to meet and mingle with other new families
- The class teacher will come and visit your little one in their own home
After the application has been received and interview completed, we are happy to offer a visiting day(s) so new students can come and spend time with the class and teacher. This allows your child to try our school and ensure a great fit and vise versa.
After the application has been received, we will schedule a shadow day(s) for your student. It is vital for your student to experience our school. They will be assigned a buddy to guide them through a school day. They will have an opportunity to interact and familiarize themselves with our faculty and staff allowing them to feel more comfortable during the interview.
We host an annual Open House in early Fall and early Spring at the Colina Campus. Come and receive a warm welcome from our students, meet our dedicated faculty, experience in-class demonstrations, see displays of student academic and creative work, and much more. The Open House for the 20/21 school year is currently in the planning process (Oct 2020).
We offer a bi-monthly virtual introduction to Waldorf education . Please RSVP to Admissions@waldorfsandiego.org for the next Zoom Waldorf 101 Q&A Session. These are for all perspective parents and it’s the perfect place to get all your curriculum and other questions answered!
