Welcome to
Portland Waldorf School!


We are Oregon’s only Waldorf school serving students from parent/child classes through high school.

From our beautiful 7.2 acre campus in Milwaukie, our mission is to work out of the insights of Rudolf Steiner to educate children for the whole of life. We nurture the imagination, cultivate the intellect, and recognize the spirit of each child. In this way, children are strengthened individually and socially to meet the challenges of life.

Portland Waldorf School was founded in 1982 as the Morning Song School. In the years since, it has steadily grown and moved through several locations in the Portland area before settling on our Milwaukie campus in 2002. In 1999, a dedicated group of faculty came together to grow Portland Waldorf High School, and today we are proud to offer a Waldorf education that spans early childhood through 12th Grade.

PWS is a proud member of the Association of Waldorf Schools of North America (AWSNA) and the Waldorf Early Childhood Association of North America (WECAN).






“In Waldorf schools, the elements of festival—light, food, song and story—permeate the weekly school rhythm; but the cadence of the year receives its form through annual festivals of nature and humanity. We celebrate in ways that foster wonder, reverence and gratitude and nourish the future capacity to respond—to be responsible for and among the human community.” (Adapted by a beautiful offering from our friends at the Eugene Waldorf School)
