Now in our 42nd year, the Waldorf School of Mendocino County offers an authentic Waldorf program, a dedicated College of Teachers, an experienced faculty, and a supportive Board, staff, and parent community.

Mendocino County maintains its rural flavor, yet offers a uniquely cultural and progressive experience, as only Northern California can. The greater community provides an excellent junior college, a rich mixture of performance and visual arts, organic and biodynamic agriculture, farmer’s markets and organic restaurants and shops. Vineyards, redwoods, and the nearby Pacific Coast make this is a great place to raise a family.

We offer a competitive salary and benefits including tuition remission, mentoring and on-going teacher development and training opportunities.
