General School Mission

SUNCOAST WALDORF SCHOOL is profoundly dedicated to bringing children and families in the Tampa Bay area the highest quality classical education available today. Its pure Waldorf curriculum promotes creativity, critical thinking, social responsibility, and a lifelong love of learning.
Since opening its doors in 1998, enrollment has continued to grow.

Suncoast Waldorf School currently offers pre-K through 7th grade, on its new campus in beautiful Palm Harbor, located in northern Pinellas County. The tree-shaded grounds provide safe and ample space for exploration and creative play, while expertly lazured classrooms encourage a sense of beauty in harmony with the natural world.

Based on the philosophy and pedagogical principles of Rudolf Steiner, the Waldorf education provides a comprehensive education in response to the needs of the child at each stage of development.

This guiding principle assists in the unfolding of each child's physical, emotional, and intellectual capabilities.
Suncoast Waldorf School teachers are Waldorf-trained, and provide a creative, supportive learning environment, with a strong commitment to excellence in all basic academic skills.

They present the classics, foreign languages, history, geography, mathematics, science - the subjects today's child needs as a foundation for tomorrow's complex and challenging world. But children also learn to knit, paint, sew, sculpt, play musical instruments, build, and develop other practical skills which helps to create a self sufficient, well rounded individual, able to confidently fulfill his or her own destinies and make positive contributions to our society and the world.

Suncoast Waldorf School greatest asset is the high degree of dedication shown by the faculty, staff, board, and parent community, in making the ideals of Waldorf education a reality in the Tampa Bay area.

Our entire community invites you to visit us and discover more about our commitment to preparing children for a lifetime of learning and creative exploration.

Suncoast Waldorf School is a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation, and is affiliated with the Association of Waldorf Schools of North America, one of the world's largest independent school movements. There are nearly one thousand Waldorf and Steiner schools worldwide.
