Welcome to Whistler Waldorf School

Whistler Waldorf School is a non-profit fully accredited independent school with the B.C. Ministry of Education and is a candidate school with the Association of Waldorf Schools of North America. The school was launched in 2000, through the efforts of three founding families, and has grown exponentially thanks to the support and demand from the communities of Whistler and Pemberton for another choice in education in our region.

Inspiring a Genuine Love of Learning

At the Whistler Waldorf School, students learn from an early age to engage in their own learning process. The imaginative play and grace of the early years evolves into an experience of meeting the beauty and complexity of the world with sensitivity and hope. This foundation leads to a rich academic experience that supports young men and women in realizing their full potential as students, as people, as members of the human community.
A Waldorf education fosters socially-responsible, motivated self-starters who are resistant to our social world pressures and innately respectful of others.
