About

Cedarwood Waldorf School has distinguished itself by developing a uniquely contemporary expression of Waldorf education. Cedarwood is located next to historic Lair Hill Park in downtown Portland, Ore. Parents who choose Cedarwood highly value a curriculum that educates the whole child. They choose an educational approach that nurtures their children’s growing physical, emotional, spiritual and academic capacities. Cedarwood’s faculty and community also appreciate the value of incorporating new ideas, practices and approaches with a continued deep respect for the carefully constructed Waldorf curriculum developed by Rudolf Steiner in 1919.

Portland, Oregon’s largest city, is located at the confluence of the Columbia and Willamette rivers in the shadow of snow-capped Mount Hood. It’s known for its parks, bridges and bicycle paths, as well as for its eco-friendliness, its restaurants and coffeehouses.The city hosts thriving art, theater and music scenes and the largest forested urban park, spanning 5,200 acres. Cedarwood takes full advantage of Portland's parks and proximity to Mount Hood, the Oregon Coast and the high mountain desert of Central Oregon through our experiential learning programs in each grade.
