Overview

Overview

Bright Water School says

Bright Water School was founded in 1998 out of a desire for greater access to Waldorf education in Seattle. Waldorf education is based on a deep understanding of the needs of the growing child and the maturing adolescent. Through a rich curriculum and innovative teaching methods, Waldorf education addresses the whole child, working to develop clarity in thought, balance in feeling and initiative in action. Our students receive much individual attention and guidance. Faculty members work closely with students, helping them to learn academic discipline and responsibility and teaching them to work independently. The social life of our school is lively and warm, and students thrive in a caring community of teachers and peers. The inherent security they experience in a Waldorf school enables students to look to the future with confidence; the bonds they form often last for a life time. Bright Water School offers Preschool through Grade Eight and Parent and Toddler classes. Bright Water School was founded in 1998 out of a desire for greater access to Waldorf education in Seattle.
