Our school has about 300 students with most of the classes having 32 students. We are located in the small city of Sebastopol, in beautiful Sonoma County, 25 minutes from the spectacular Northern California coast and an hour from San Francisco and Berkeley.  The ocean breezes tend to keep the summers cool, and the winters mild.  Numerous K-8 plus two Waldorf high schools, private and public, populate the area, making Sonoma County “Waldorf Mecca.”  You won’t find a better spot to raise a family, connect with colleagues, fulfill your professional development goals, and hone your craft.
