Our Curriculum

Each Waldorf school shares a unique approach. It is our experience that the majority of our graduates are accepted into a university or other post-secondary program of their choice. Learn about our successful curricula below!

Early Childhood

Infant – 6

Children immediately experience a learning environment of beauty and wonder, full of warm, flowing colours and natural objects that invite imagination and interaction through play.

Lower School

Ages 6 – 14

At TWS we strive to inspire our students to evolve into creative thinkers who are personally centred and strongly connected to humanity and the environment.

High School

Ages 14 – 18

High School at Toronto Waldorf School is a wonderful blend of sciences, mathematics, arts and humanities, with a healthy dose of social life and physical activity.
