About Us

Established in 1995, Sebastopol Charter is a K-8 public charter school guided by the core principles of Public Waldorf Education.

This kind of education allows for the development of a strong and healthy imagination. Prospective parents need to be committed to eliminating television viewing, internet access, and video games for their children in younger grades and to limiting those activities in the middle grades.

The mission of the school is to provide an education that nurtures the development of the whole child, to teach and encourage each child to become a life-long learner, and to become a benefit to the community and society. 

Class teachers move with their classes through the grades beginning in first grade. This commitment on the part of the teachers allows for a strong bond to develop between the children, their parents, and the teacher. The curriculum addresses the developmental needs of children. In so doing, it fosters wholesomeness while holding high academic standards. Throughout the grades, we bring a living education, integrating storytelling, music, movement, crafts, and the arts into the academic day.

Our goal is to foster respect and love for self, for others, and for nature. We strive to encourage life-long learning so we may all reach toward our highest potential.

Sebastopol Charter School is located on two campuses. Grades 3-8 are housed in a two story building on Main Street in downtown Sebastopol; the two kindergartens, first and second grades are located next to Brookhaven Middle School and the Super Playground Park, less than a mile from the Main Street campus. Sebastopol Charter has just acquired a 20 acre parcel of land in Sebastopol and plans to have a unified campus in the next year.
