Educating with Warmth and Wisdom

The Upper Valley Waldorf School delivers a proven and enriching alternative to education as usual.

UVWS offers a full Nursery through 8th grade program, plus Parent-Child classes.

In the elementary and middle schools, we are committed to providing a rich, rounded curriculum with a balance of academics, arts, music, movement and social education. Our Early Childhood classes are play-centered, allowing young children to develop at a natural pace, without premature academic pressure.
