Sebastopol Independent Charter School is a K-8 charter school with experienced, Waldorf-trained teachers and a commitment to offering a Waldorf curriculum with integrity. Our parent body is incredibly committed to Waldorf education and works hard to support the faculty and school. Sebastopol Charter was the first charter school to provide Waldorf education in the San Francisco Bay Area in 1995. We have a 20-acre campus, including a sports field and track, which we look forward to develop further.
Our school has about 300 students with most of the classes having 30 students. We are located in the small city of Sebastopol, in beautiful Sonoma County, 25 minutes from the spectacular Northern California coast and an hour from San Francisco and Berkeley. The ocean breezes tend to keep the summers cool, and the winters mild. Numerous K-8 plus two Waldorf high schools, private and public, populate the area, making Sonoma County a “Waldorf Mecca.” You won’t find a better spot to raise a family, connect with colleagues, fulfill your professional development goals, and hone your craft. Every year, families move from out of state to attend our school. Perhaps it is the right place for you too.
