Our Story

Welcome to our School

Thank you for your interest in Nevada Sage Waldorf School!  We have been serving the Reno-Tahoe area since 2000.  Nevada Sage Waldorf School is an independent, non-sectarian school offering an early childhood program and a growing grade school program. Our school is a community of children, teachers, parents, trustees, families and friends who embrace the joy of learning. We are dedicated to providing an education that enlivens the whole child with rich experiences. Daily and weekly rhythms, along with seasonal festivals celebrate and accentuate the passage of time with beauty, meaning and purpose.

Strong and vibrant school community. 

It is the living vision of a group of dedicated parents who unified their vision to bring Waldorf education to the Truckee Meadows in 2000.  We began our early childhood program in the home of our first teacher, moved to a small house in 2003, then to a larger campus in 2005, and expanded again to our new campus in fall 2014.

Our school is the first Waldorf school in Nevada.

We are proud to be among 1,000 Waldorf schools worldwide that are located in 83 countries.  While each Waldorf school is unique and operates independently, we are all guided by the same core principles, developmentally appropriate curricula, and similar teaching methods. Waldorf curriculum was developed by Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925) and is based on his studies of the developmental stages of childhood.  Waldorf education is the fastest growing private educational movement in the world.
