The Waldorf School of Mendocino County offers an authentic Waldorf program: a dedicated and experienced faculty, a helpful staff, a supportive Board, and a committed parent community.  We are located near both Rudolf Steiner College in the Sacramento area and the rich offerings in the greater San Francisco Bay.

Mendocino County maintains its rural flavor yet offers a culturally progressive experience, as only Northern California can.  Mendocino College, for example, brings together a rich mixture of performance and visual arts, and organic and bio-dynamic agriculture.  Farmers markets, organic restaurants, boutique shopping, wine tasting, the redwoods, and the nearby Pacific Coast also make our area 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.
