Who Attends UVWS

  • Diversity: In keeping with the socially and culturally inclusive nature of Waldorf education, UVWS welcomes students, families, faculty and staff of all races, faiths, creeds, gender and sexual orientations. It is a fundamental goal of our education to bring students to an understanding and experience of the common humanity of all of the world's people, transcending the stereotypes, prejudices, and divisive barriers of classification by sex, race, religion, and nationality.
  • Economics: Approximately one-half of UVWS families receive an adjustment to the published tuition.  We are a non-profit entity that supports itself through tuition, grants, and development efforts. Although our funds are limited, we are dedicated to offering a tuition adjustment to as many eligible families as possible through our tuition adjustment program.
  • Gender: Although percentages vary within each class, overall the school maintains a balance between girls and boys. Currently, the gender ratio at UVWS is 57% girls and 43% boys. 
  • Geography: UVWS attracts families from across the Upper Connecticut River Valley of Vermont and New Hampshire and beyond. A sampling of representative towns in Vermont includes Barnard, Bethel, Bridgewater, Hartford, Hartland, Norwich, Perkinsville, Pomfret, Reading, South Royalton, Wilder, Windsor, and Woodstock. A sampling of representative towns in New Hampshire includes Cornish, Enfield, Etna, Hanover, Lebanon, Lyme and Plainfield.

Personally, I think Waldorf education was one of the best things that ever happened to me. ...The seamless transition from day to day and year to year provided me with an opportunity to develop some amazing friendships, a good working relationship with [my class teacher] and the other teachers.  ~Christian Brechbuhl ('06)
