Enrollment for the 2016-17 school year is now open for the Wasatch Waldorf Charter School, the first Waldorf School in Utah.
An approach to education started by the German-born educator Waldorf Steiner, these schools are known for their “head, heart, hands” philosophy. Classroom studies often emphasis development of artistic expression and critical reasoning skills, with only minor reliance on quantitative and standardized testing.
The tuition-free public school, to be located in the Millcreek area of Salt Lake County, welcomes students kindergarten through 8th grade. Each grade will have space for approximately 60 students, for a total school population of 540. Enrollment will be chosen by lottery this spring.
Educator positions are still being filled. Information on specific employment openings and qualifications can be found on the school’s website.
