The Waldorf School of Atlanta

The Waldorf School of Atlanta inspires in its students a life-long love of learning through a curriculum that balances academic, artistic and practical life skills. We provide an approach to education that respects the unique abilities of each child and fosters his or her capacity to think with clarity, feel with compassion, and act with purpose and social responsibility in the world. The Waldorf School is located in Decatur and serves 250 students from age 3 through the eighth grade. Academe of the Oaks, also located in Decatur, continues the Waldorf philosophy through the high school years. Waldorf schools place a great emphasis on nature through a curriculum that supports and teaches farming, gardening, composting, and recycling.


From Atlanta, take Ponce de Leon east to Decatur. You will pass Commerce Drive. When you come to Commerce the second time (past the Courthouse and Decatur Square), make a right turn. Commerce will become Columbia Drive. Go straight. When you see The Waldorf School sign, make a right turn into the parking lot.
