Employment

Our People

Established in 1996, we are young, diverse, energetic and urban. Our commitment to a deep understanding of the needs of each student is reflected in the relatively small class sizes and highly qualified teachers.

A magnet for creative, community-minded people, we seek to foster and support thoughtful, socially conscious and engaged citizens. In this regard, the community at WSP is exceptionally active, engaged and thriving.

We are committed to increasing and supporting diversity in all of its forms in employment and in our programs.  We encourage interest and applications from candidates currently underrepresented in Waldorf education.

 

Our Campus

Our school is located at 6000 Wayne Avenue, PA 19144. A former church, 6000 Wayne Avenue was designed by Frank Furness and George Hewitt; it is as charming as it is enchanting. There has never been a more exciting time to join the Philly Waldorf community.

Accreditation

The Waldorf School of Philadelphia is on a path to full AWSNA membership and endeavors to receive accreditation by the end of the 2015-2016 school year.
