WSNO Mission and History

Our Mission

To awaken and draw out each student's individual strengths so that he or she will become a free thinker, a seeker of truth and knowledge, and an enthusiastic participant in the community.

The Waldorf School of New Orleans welcomes, values, and supports racial, religious, economic, and cultural diversity, including single, dual, or multiple parent households and LGBT parents, faculty, and/or students. We seek a diverse faculty and student body and are committed to having our school community reflect the abundant diversity of New Orleans. We believe that diversity is vital to our students and our school.

Our History

The Waldorf School of New Orleans (WSNO), originally called The Hill School, was founded in 2000. We are a member of the Waldorf Early Childhood Association of North America (WECAN), and we are recognized as a Developing School by the Association of Waldorf Schools of North America (AWSNA). Our school, garden, and playground are located in a renovated bread factory in the historic Irish Channel neighborhood of New Orleans.

See how the 2011 AWSNA service weekend was a living example of "many hands make light work." Our play yard and our walls have never looked more beautiful!
