Our People

Established in 1996, we are 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.


The Waldorf School of Philadelphia is a full member of AWSNA, the Association of Waldorf Schools of North America.
