Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
The Waldorf School of Princeton is committed to fostering a diverse, inclusive community where people of all races, ethnicities, religions, sexual orientations, nationalies, and identities are warmly welcome. We denounce all forms of discriminiation and intolerance. Our dedication to diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) is collaborative work that affects every part of our school.
While we are proud to celebrate 100 years of Waldorf education with our fellow schools across the globe, we recognize that changes must be made for this education to reflect the modern world and our responsibilities as human beings. Our experienced Early Childhood and Grade School faculty is working continuously to reexamine and revise our curriculum, while also exploring methods to bring this education to our students in new, relevant ways. This work is informed by our teachers’ deep understanding of Waldorf Education pedagogy, as well as the training and studies that they are participating in with a focus on DEI.
This is a living statement, and the actions we are taking are ongoing. We invite you to join us as we continue in this work together.
“Receive the children in reverence, educate them in love, and send them forth in freedom.”

“… It wasn’t simply a school, it was a sort of rediscovery of our values.” —Veronica S., former WSP parent
