Equity, Inclusion and Diversity

Inclusive Community

The faculty, staff, parents and students of the Waldorf School of San Diego represent a wide array of ethnicities, nationalities, languages, socio-economic backgrounds, gender identities, sexual orientations, learning differences and life experiences.  We seek to establish an inclusive learning environment in which differences are understood and celebrated. We strive to weave multiculturalism into the curriculum and to integrate equity and inclusion into every aspect of school life.  Growth is an ongoing process that calls on the qualities of commitment, cooperation, and respect that are at the heart of Waldorf education. We aspire to be a community that is supportive, equitable, and free from impediments to learning. The curriculum that we deliver offers students both a window into the experiences of others and a mirror to reflect on their own lives.
